Chaudhry, Ayesha S.2021
Books
The Colour of God is the story of a child raised in Canada by parents who embraced a puritanical version of Islam to shield them from racism. The author explores the joys and sorrows of growing up in a fundamentalist Muslim household, wedding grand historical narratives of colonialism and migration to the small intimate heartbreaks of modern life. In revisiting the beliefs and ideals she was raised with, Chaudhry invites us to reimagine our ideas of self and family, state and citizenship, love and loss.

Notes:
"An engrossing read, not because it tells the story of one woman's journey from 'subjugation' within a puritanical sect of Islam to finding 'liberation' by taking off her veil, but because it refuses and interrogates these facile labels." --Monica Ali, from cover.
