"Delicate, heart-wrenching and poetic, this is a novel of great poise and power." --Tash Aw, author of "The Harmony Silk Factory"

Set in Bangladesh at a time when Islamic fundamentalism is on the rise, "The Good Muslim" is an epic story about faith, family and the long shadow of war. Tahmima Anam, the prize-winning author of "A Golden Age," offers a moving portrait of a sister and brother who struggle with the competing loyalties of love and belief as they cope with the lasting ravages of war and confront the deeply intimate roots of religious extremism. Echoing the intensity and humanity of Thrity Umrigar's "The Space Between Us," Abraham Verghese's "Cutting for Stone," and Kiran Desai's "The Inheritance of Loss," Anam's "accomplished and gripping novel," in the words of author Pankaj Mishra, "describes not only the tumult of a great historical event, but also the small but heroic struggles of individuals living in the shadow of revolution and war."
