Tahmima Anam on The Good Muslim

Tahmima Anam in conversation with Claire Armitstead, the literary editor of the Guardian.

In this sequel to A Golden Age, Commonwealth Prize winning author Anam shows us a family navigating through the aftermath of war in Bangladesh, a young nation searching to define itself.

For Maya Haque and her family, everything has changed – their friends, their city and especially her brother who has abandoned his liberal beliefs to become a strict religious leader. As she comes to grips with her brother’s radicalism, she is forced to rethink what it is to be a good daughter, sister, friend and citizen – and a good Muslim.

Set in the dusty streets of Dhaka and the villages of rural Bangladesh, at a time when the rise of religious fundamentalism had not yet encroached, The Good Muslim is an epic of the challenges of peace in the long shadow of war.

Anam will be in conversation with Claire Armitstead, the literary editor of the Guardian.
