The book is an analytical study of the fictional literature of Shaykha Al-Nakhi. The idea of studying the narrative structure in the writings of the writer Sheikha Al-Nakhi, came as a sign of the era of social transformation in the United Arab Emirates from the pre-oil period to the post-oil period, and the social and cultural progress that accompanied this transformation in the Emirates’ journey.

The book in itself is considered a qualitative addition to the critical experience, an approach to Emirati feminist literature, and a stimulus for researchers and a guide in their critical treatment of this literature.

This study consists of an introduction, five chapters and a conclusion. The introduction acts like a prelude that monitors the development of cultural life in the UAE, and draws the narrative scene in terms of foundation and leadership. It also shows the cultural and intellectual formation of Shaykha Al-Nakhi in an attempt to show her literary position in the world of the short story.
