Staff Reviews


This powerful little novel is the heartbreaking tale of two men, each struggling with personal demons (and angels) in contemporary Iraq. I was intrigued by the small window opened to Iraqi home life, religion, and culture....subject matter seldom explored in Western media. More importantly, the book provides a stinging portrayal of the damage done in a closed society that preaches intolerance and refuses to recognize the validity and worth of all its people.

Description


Lambda Literary Award winner, Best Gay Fiction

A revelatory novel about being queer and Muslim, set in war-torn Iraq in 2003. Ramy is a young gay Iraqi struggling to find a balance between his sexuality, religion, and culture. Ammar is a sheikh whose guidance Ramy seeks, and whose tolerance is tested by his belief in the teachings of the Qur'an. Full of quiet moments of beauty and raw depictions of violence, God in Pink poignantly captures the anguish and the fortitude of Islamic life in Iraq.

Hasan Namir was born in Iraq in 1987. God in Pink is his first novel.
