About the Author

Fariha Róisín is an Australian-Canadian writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, Vice, Fusion, Village Voice, and elsewhere. Her work often explores Muslim identity, race, pop culture, and film. It also examines the intersection of queerness and being a femme of color while navigating a white world. She is the author of the poetry collection, HOW TO CURE A GHOST, and the guided journal, BEING IN YOUR BODY.


"Fariha Róisín's novel sings of building joy within sorrow and spins a gossamer reverie that clings to the consciousness... With its profound testaments to the love of found families and the courage involved in daring to open a cracked heart, Like a Bird is an unforgettable novel." --Foreword Reviews
"In Like a Bird, Róisín grapples with big issues, from identity to racism to sexual assault, but she does so with a lyricism and generosity that allow the reader intimate access into Taylia's experience, and the opportunity to feel the same empowerment and freedom that Taylia achieves for herself." --Kristin Iversen, Refinery29
"Taylia's story is one of survival and the power of community, something Róisín captures with her beautiful prose and a piercing perspective that touches on today's political and social climate." --Vogue
"Well-paced and hopeful, this stirring work will resonate with those interested in stories of young women breaking free of oppression and trauma." --Publishers Weekly
"In lustrous, lyrical language, multifaceted artist Róisín has written an ode to the joy and healing power of self-love. This powerful novel is highly recommended." --Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
