Writer Rabi Talle was engaged once, to a lovely man, but his family didn’t approve of her writing. Her current offers for husbands are from a middle-aged man working at the state publishing house who will make her wife number three and a younger lawyer who will make her wife number two. She’s choosing the publisher, who here brings her fruits called agualuma. Lawyers aren’t good Muslims, she explains, because they argue a case instead of arguing the truth.
