Ashraf Shirazi reads Lamya H's extraordinary debut memoir with the perfect mix of tenderness and ferocity. Lamya H uses stories and verses from the Quran to reflect on their life as a queer Muslim immigrant. They draw strength and inspiration from the stories of prophets like Maryam and Musa, finding parallels between these celebrated lives and their own. Shirazi's narration is searching, conversational, and often humming with emotion. Her voice flows naturally, drawing listeners into Lamya H's lush prose and probing questions. This powerful, vulnerable, and beautifully written audiobook explores all the complexities of queer and trans Muslim life, ultimately rejoicing in its sacredness. It's a game changer for queer Muslim literature and an absolute must-listen for 2023. L.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
