Sinopsis:

In the dying days of a brutal civil war, Sohail Haque stumbles upon an abandoned building. Inside, he finds a young woman whose story will haunt him for a lifetime to come...Almost a decade later, Sohail's sister Maya returns home after a long absence to find her beloved brother transformed. While Maya has stuck to her revolutionary ideals, Sohail has shunned his old life to become a charismatic religious leader. And when Sohail decides to send his son to madrasa, the conflict between them comes to a devastating climax. Set in Bangladesh at a time when religious fundamentalism is on the rise, The Good Muslim is an epic story about faith, family and the long shadow of war.

Críticas:

'What a superb novel. Its delicacy and power and breadth - the way its compassion and grief keep complicating its anger - I read it with heart in mouth.'
--Helen Garner, author of The Spare Room

A major new talent. --Observer

The Good Muslim provides some penetrating meditations on faith, war, linguistic and class hegemony, parenthood, sibling rivalry and love. One looks forward to the third volume of the trilogy. --Claire Chambers, Times Literary Supplement

An assured, moving read. --The Times on A Golden Age

In this book of searing beauty, Tahmima Anam shows us a family searching for ways to navigate through the aftermath of war; in the process she takes us on an unforgettable journey through a young nation trying to define itself. --Kamila Shamsie, author of Burnt Shadows

Tahmima Anam's unflinching examination of the agonies of post-colonial nation-building sets the intimacy of personal life against a backdrop of national and religious conflict. Delicate, heart-wrenching and poetic, this is a novel of great poise and power.
--Tash Aw, author of The Harmony Silk Factory and Map of the Invisible World

Confirms Anam as one of our most important novelists --Sunday Telegraph

Tahmima Anam's achievements are many in The Good Muslim, but the biggest, in some ways, is that she manages to make the "difficult second album" look easy. This is a quietly confident novel that shows no strain of critical expectation, and all the narrative and poetic skill of her debut. Strong emotional undercurrents and intense passions course between characters. At times, the fabric of the narrative shimmers with poetry. Anam seems to be a novelist not so much luxuriating in the act of writing as in total control of it, using just the right words to create her stunning story --Independent

A moving and intelligent picture of a society in flux...Anam is excellent in her use of the details of everyday life. There are some acutely observed set pieces, and her evocation of the way her characters live is so entrancing. Good novels invite you to think and feel. This is just such a one. You live with the characters and they leave you with questions. A remarkable and beautiful novel
--Scotsman
