This novel is a delightfully original, tongue-in-cheek look at the obstacles women face in life; a parody of the misogynistic, post-colonial world that we live in.

‘For the last time…’

saheban-advert8c

For the last time, I want to make it clear to everyone that Baby SahebaN DID NOT access Object IT herself, and that the Object was pushed on her by its rightful owner. I conclude that SahebaN was facing sexual abuse amounting to incest as the said adult male figure held a position of respect and trust in her life. I commend SahebaN for her courage for holding that piece of –it, for not letting go, and for forcing a retreat on the despicable offender.’

In ‘Holy IT: SahebaN vs. an Early Education Class‘.

Fetus-wise

Pearls of Wisdom, Epic Revelations, Naked Truths

Here’s an ordinary white one…

saheban-advert5a

‘This sense of perpetual comfort available to male fetuses or assumed male fetuses is very relaxing for the fetus. As a result, in the womb of her mother, SahebaN grew strong, developed high self-esteem, and learned to feel comfortable with her body.’
