Star-studded and beautifully written, this collection of twelve diverse stories tackles love and desire by South Asian-heritage British Muslim women authors, including Ayisha Malik and Shelina Janmohamed. Although outsiders often expect Muslim women to be timid, conservative, or submissive, the reality is different. While some of these authors express a quiet piety and explore poignant situations, others use black humour and biting satire, or play with possibilities.
Theese authors write on social issues such as women’s and LGBTQI+ rights within
diverse and multicultural societies and, more specifically, speaking to issues
such as marriage, spousal migration and sex education.
