Reviews

The Beauty of Your Face is a striking and stirring debut, one that reaches its hands straight into the fire. Sahar Mustafah writes with wisdom and grace about the unthinkable, the unspeakable, and the unspoken.--Rebecca Makkai, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of The Great Believers
Mustafah writes impressively and convincingly of her Palestinian American immigrant community... [A]n adept author well worth reading.
[M]oving, especially in [Mustafah's] depictions of Afaf's inner state. The sections of the book that describe Afaf's early life are especially vivid.
[An] arresting debut... Throughout, Mustafah powerfully demonstrates the human capacity for redemption and renewal. This inviting, topical tale will stay with readers.
