There were moments where I really appreciated the writing style but this just isn t a book for me There were too many different types of writing going on and no real story Which works in poetry but this was presented as some kind of novel I don t know I appreciate it somewhat for what it was but not for me. |Free Epub ⚇ “Muslim”: A Novel ♰ Muslim A Novel is a genre bending, poetic reflection on what it means to be Muslim from one of France s leading writers In this novel, the second in a trilogy, Rahmani s narrator contemplates the loss of her native language and her imprisonment and exile for being Muslim, woven together in an exploration of the political and personal relationship of language within the fraught history of Islam Drawing inspiration from the oral histories of her native Berber language, the Koran, and French children s tales, Rahmani combines fiction and lyric essay in to tell an important story, both powerful and visionary, of identity, persecution, and violence This is one of those books that even though I couldn t necessarily tell you what it was about, I could still tell you how it affected me And I m glad to have listened to Zahia Rahmani for the hour or so it took to read this book. A love letter to us the outcasts, the hyphenated others, those who have lost tongues and gained dialects Zahia Rahmani speaks to the religious fairy tales of my girlhood, the Muslim lore we listened to while learning the Arabic alphabet Muslim challenges the borders of genre, much like Rahmani pushes up against the boundaries of multiple, overlapping identities, investigating imposed definitions and complicating what it means to be colonized, woman, Muslim. Quick Review Heady and powerful meditation about the dangers of monolithic othering the erasure of self, language, and identity and the feeling of in betweenness in a mixture of autobiographically inspired fiction religious and folk story and critique of the US invasions of Iraq and Afghanistancurious as to how this book would have been written now, in 2019 Powerful, timely, and highly recommended reading.
