Good Muslim Boy

Good Muslim BoyAuthor: Osamah Sami
Publisher: Hardie Grant Books (2015), 259 pages
RRP: $32.95 (also available as an audio book)

When I see a book described as a memoir and the author is under 40 I am always suspicious. However all doubts were assuaged and I found Osamah Sami’s Good Muslim Boy to be an engrossing collection of bittersweet childhood recollections combined with the gripping story of a young man’s desperate challenge to honour his father.
