A dynamic collection of contemporary fiction, poetry, and nonfiction by North American Muslims.
"The goal with this anthology is to represent that full range of contemporary expressions of Islam, as well as a full range of genres--poetry, fiction, essay, memoir, political writing, cultural writing, and of course plenty of texts which mix and match and blur all of these modes . . . the trajectories between the pieces--like that of kismet--will be multiple, nonlinear, abstract. The Muslim community is plural and contradictory. This collection of voices ought to be symphony and cacophony at once, like the body of Muslims as they are today."--Kazim Ali, editor
