About this book

Focusing on British novels about the Muslim immigrant experience published after 9/11; this book examines the promise as well as the limits of 'British Muslim' identity as a viable form of self-representation, and the challenges - particularly for women - of reconciling non-Western religious identity with the secular policies of Western states.

Reviews

“Santesso offers another compelling intervention into the gaps of many studies of contemporary Anglophone literature: their treatment of everyday religious faith and practice, particularly for diasporic Muslim women. … through an examination of narratives of disorientation, Santesso suggests that a more complex and textured portrait emerges of immigrant Muslim women.” (Emily Johansen, Contemporary Women's Writing, Vol. 10 (1), March, 2016)
