Reviews

"Anam has a gift for tackling complex issues both personal and political."--Library Journal
"Anam seems to be a novelist not so much luxuriating in the act of writing as in total control of it, using the right words to create her stunning story."--Arifa Akbar, The Independent
"Anam tells a poignant, little-known story of a country often lost in the maze of global politics."--Booklist
"Anam's fluent prose and sharp insights are at their best when the narrative strays . . . into the surreal ways in which faith and love work-and sometimes fail."--The New Yorker
"The Good Muslim brims with gripping narrative, absorbing history and Shakespearean moral conundrums. . . . A keen examination of survival and forgiveness."--Los Angeles Times
"Anam has an eye for culture, and for cultural dissonance. The writer's gift is to make the unfamiliar understood. The Good Muslim succeeds in doing exactly that, and doing it well."--Denver Post
"Gripping and beautifully written. . . . From historical, political, and social tragedy, Anam has fashioned a mesmerizing story capturing a culture and a time."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Throughout the novel's extremes of violence and tragedy, Anam always allows the ultimate humanity of the characters to shine through."--Kirkus Reviews
