Bushra Rehman

Bushra Rehman’s novel, Corona, a dark comedy about being Muslim American was chosen by the New York Public Library as one of its favorite novels about NYC and her collection of poems, Marianna’s Beauty Salon was described by Joseph O. Legaspi as a “love poem for Muslim girls, Queens, and immigrants making sense of their foreign home--and surviving.” She co-edited the anthology Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism, chosen as one of Ms. Magazine's "100 Best Non-fiction Books of All Time.” Her newest novel, Rose, Mouth, Lion about a young Pakistani woman from Corona, Queens is forthcoming from Flatiron Books.
