On the heels of the groundbreaking collection Love InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women comes the other side of the story. In this book, American Muslim men speak openly for the first time about their love lives, offering frank, funny, and insightful glimpses into their hearts-and bedrooms. Twenty-two writers from varied ethnic, racial and religious perspectives take us along as they search for love and passion. These honest and provocative stories reflect the strength and diversity of both their faith community and of America.
Ayesha Mattu is a writer, editor and international development consultant. Nura Maznavi is an attorney and writer. Their first book, Love, InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women, was featured globally by media including the New York Times, NPR, the BBC, Washington Post, Guardian, Times of India, Dawn Pakistan, and Jakarta Post.
