Hala Alyan recommends
The Map of Salt and Stars (2018)
Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar and Zeyn Joukhadar
"In Joukhadar's intoxicating debut, the past and present are brought to life, illuminating how, in exile, neither can exist without the other. With clear, exquisite prose, Joukhadar unspools a brightly imagined tale of family and grief, mapmaking and migration. This important book is a love letter to the vanished--and to what remains."
A Woman Is No Man (2019)
Etaf Rum
"Etaf Rum's A Woman is No Man is a shattering, revelatory tale of immigration, womanhood, and the cyclical impact of violence and oppression. An unflinchingly written story of both loss and hope, strewn with enthralling, vibrant characters, Rum has accomplished the extraordinary: a tale that bridges the domestic and global, memory and future, the old world and the new. A spectacular debut."
No Land to Light On (2022)
Yara Zgheib
"A masterful story of tragedy and redemption, an entire history told through the prism of a single Syrian couple, beginning and ending with love."
When We Were Sisters (2022)
Fatimah Asghar
"In this captivating, gorgeously written book, Asghar weaves a tale of sisters in the wake of unspeakable loss. Propulsively readable and experimental in form, this is an unflinching look at family, grief, and reclamation--of self and other."
