A Place for Us

by Fatima Farheen Mirza | Hardcover, $27.00 »

A Place for Us Bold and utterly breathtaking, A Place for Us tells the story of a Muslim Indian-American family as they come together for their eldest daughter's wedding. What comes next is a beautiful, intimate and expansive story about family, identity, faith and culture. This story has everything from familial love and betrayal to reconciling one's personal beliefs with those held by their parents to what it means to be American and Muslim. Whatever your beliefs or cultural background may be, this is a story for everyone because at its heart it is a story about family: the ties that bind us together, how they break apart and what it means to come home. It is an American epic for our time.  —Michelle
