Description
"Delicate, heart-wrenching and poetic, this is a novel ofgreat poise and power." --Tash Aw, author of The Harmony Silk Factory

Set in Bangladesh at a time when Islamic fundamentalism ison the rise, The Good Muslim is an epic story about faith, familyand the long shadow of war. Tahmima Anam, the prize-winning author of A Golden Age, offers a moving portrait of a sister and brother whostruggle with the competing loyalties of love and belief as they cope with thelasting ravages of war and confront the deeply intimate roots of religiousextremism. Echoingthe intensity and humanity of Thrity Umrigar's The SpaceBetween Us, Abraham Verghese's Cutting for Stone, and Kiran Desai's TheInheritance of Loss,Anam's "accomplished and gripping novel," in thewords of author Pankaj Mishra, "describes not only the tumult of a greathistorical event, but also the small but heroic struggles of individuals livingin the shadow of revolution and war."
