Books I Wish I’d Published

Taqwacores, The - Click Image to CloseWell, not really. It seems like The Taqwacores was published exactly as it should have been—like a punk rock album. But it is (so far) a very interesting book. I don’t know if it’s The Catcher in the Rye for young Muslims, maybe Paula Jolin’s In the Name of God through a Nick & Norah’s filter. Either way, have Wikipedia open when you read it unless your Koran and your punk rock lexicon are totally up to date.

Check out the piece in The New York Times and then go find the book.
