Publisher's Summary

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.

Wonderful book marred by poor reading

A sensitive sophisticated book ruined by an reader with nil familiarity with Bangladesh or the Bengali language. The pronunciations are painful. Amazon could have chosen a better reader.

Beautiful and tumultuous

It is finally that the mind bending and almost paradoxical political revolution of Bangladesh makes sense to me.

Tania Rodriguez's reading is amazing.
