Star-studded and beautifully written,this collection of twelve diverse stories tackles love and desire by SouthAsian-heritage British Muslim women authors, including Ayisha Malik (author of This Green and Pleasant Land)and ShelinaJanmohamed (author of Love in a Headscarf). 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. Still others shade into the territory of a Muslim Fifty Shades of Grey,creating grey areas where the mainstream media sees only black and white. Theese authors write on social issues such as women’s and LGBTQI+ rights withindiverse and multicultural societies and, more specifically, speaking to issuessuch as marriage, spousal migration and sex education.
