On changing lanes and saving my best jokes

Dear Readers,
Some of you know me from my previous novels – A Golden Age, The Good Muslim, and The Bones of Grace. The novels followed the journeys of three generations of Bangladeshi women from the Haque family. My immense gratitude to all those of you who read those books with care and love.
For the last ten years, I’ve been working at a tech startup founded by my husband. At some point in those Read more of this blog post »

“Before placing her in her mother's arms, she whispered, as she had at all the other births, hello, little amphibian. Someone had to acknowledge the strangeness of this soul, and the distance it had traversed, millions and millions of years, in order to be here.”
