Laughing All the Way to the Mosque by Zarqa Nawaz

Laughing All the Way to the MosqueThe New York Times has published an amazing piece about author Zarqa Nawaz’s LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE MOSQUE (HarperCollins Canada, Virago Press). The article describes Zarqa’s book as “not your typical treatment of Islam” and “a giddy romp through Nawaz’s experience as a Muslim living in Canada.” It says “Nawaz never reduces Islam to a punchline, but her religious beliefs fuel many of her anecdotes — as do the community of Muslims who populate the book’s narrative.” Check it out at the following link: http://nytlive.nytimes.com/womenintheworld/2016/06/09/zarqa-nawaz-turns-her-brazen-humor-on-herself-in-laughing-all-the-way-to-the-mosque/
