The Kabul Beauty School Summary

The Kabul Beauty School by Deborah Rodriguez

Kabul Beauty School is a remarkable tale of an extraordinary community of women, all of whom have stories to tell, who come together and learn the arts of perms, friendship, and freedom. Arriving in Afghanistan in 2002 with nothing more than a beauty degree and a desire to help, Deborah Rodriguez set out on a course of action that would change her life and those of many Afghan women. The once proud tradition of beauty schools had been all but destroyed and with it Afghani women's ability to support themselves. As one of the founders of the Kabul Beauty School she set about training women and helping them rebuild their lives.

The Kabul Beauty School Reviews

A remarkable story The Sunday Times A quirky and supremely uplifting read Glamour Terrifically readable, and rich in personal stories. Kirkus Reviews A terrific opening chapter--colorful, suspenseful, funny--ushers readers into the curious closed world of Afghan women...This witty and insightful (if light) memoir will be perfect for women's reading groups and daytime talk shows. Publishers' Weekly starred review Rodriguez has written a very gutsy, real-life adventure story for women... Her courage in tackling gigantic cultural barriers is also remarkable. Publishing News This lively memoir is full of darkly funny moments...and the humor leavens the horror stories about life in this war-torn land. A dishy but substantial read. People 'A fascinating account of the friendships she has made and her love affair with the country, its culture and its people. A thought-provoking read of one woman determined to make a difference.' My Weekly
