Description

Lambda Literary Award winner, Best Gay Fiction

A revelatory novel about being queer and Muslim, set in war-torn Iraq in 2003. Ramy is a young gay Iraqi struggling to find a balance between his sexuality, religion, and culture. Ammar is a sheikh whose guidance Ramy seeks, and whose tolerance is tested by his belief in the teachings of the Qur'an. Full of quiet moments of beauty and raw depictions of violence, God in Pink poignantly captures the anguish and the fortitude of Islamic life in Iraq.

Hasan Namir was born in Iraq in 1987. God in Pink is his first novel.

      • premium: False
      • source: The Globe and Mail
      • content:

        "If reading from the context of queer lit, what's most revolutionary about God in Pink is its insistence on faith ... God in Pink gives voice to the often voiceless, offer the outside world a window into their lives, and provide a glimmer of hope for change."

      • premium: False
      • source: Bay Area Reporter
      • content: "One can only hope that a courageous and talented voice like Namir's can hold a mirror up to Iraqi citizens so they can at least start seeing their fellow gay and lesbian citizens as valued human beings and not evil sinners to be ostracized, oppressed, silenced, and murdered."
      • premium: False
      • source: Bay Area Reporter
      • content: "This book should be on everyone's shelf -- religious and non-religious alike. It is a raw, passionate, gritty tale of not only these two men who chose different paths, and are still making choices, but also of the many people around them who make their own life decisions to love, hate, accept, kill, tolerate or repel them."
