ISBN: 9780822232520

Brilliant Pakistani-American writer Zarina is focused on finishing her novel about women and Islam. The only distraction is her father’s insistence at setting her up on a date with Eli, a young convert who pleases both her father’s conservative values and Zarina’s modern, complicated Muslim identity. Everything seems to be going the way everyone wants, until Zarina finishes her book—a fictional accounting of the story in the Quran of the revelation of the veil. Zarina’s novel portrays a very different version of the Prophet Muhammad than traditions allow, and the whole family is forced to confront who and what they believe in. A passionate and searing look at a family divided by faith, bonded by love, and searching for truth in contemporary America.
