Synopsis

'Engrossing.' Monica Ali

'Heartbreaking and really funny.' Ross Gay

'This book fell into my heart.' Sabrina Mahfouz

'The kind of authentic voice that is rarely heard.' Saima Mir

This is the story of a child raised in Canada by parents who embraced a puritanical version of Islam to shield them from racism. The author explores the joys and sorrows of growing up in a fundamentalist Muslim household, wedding grand historical narratives of colonialism and migration to the small intimate heartbreaks of modern life. In revisiting the beliefs and ideals she was raised with, Chaudhry invites us to reimagine our ideas of self and family, state and citizenship, love and loss.
