MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN, A
Claire Chambers, Nafhesa Ali, Richard Phillips
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: HopeRoad Publishing Ltd
A collection of diverse stories about love and desire by South Asian-heritage British Muslim women writers, including Ayisha Malik and Shelina Janmohamed. Reflections on migration, racism and arranged marriage.
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. The stories also reflect on gender differences, lesbian desire,and many other subjects.
