  • In "Zapatos sin tacón", an anthology of Arab female writers, edited by Ami Elad-Bouskila, with stories by Hanan Al-Shaikh and Liana Badr, Latifa Baka contributed the title story. She is said to have a mordant style, faithfully representing the collection as an image and also graphically reflecting the content and message of the others. Baka's vibrant story - is about a group of female patients who escape from their hospital beds, leaping through a window (under the direction of "Patient No. 36, an anarchist"), in order to attend an evening of popular songs.
