Masood travels alone across Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Turkey, though she does not speak the languages of these countries and though she is both a foreigner and a woman. All of these get Masood into deep trouble at times. In the process of traveling she deepens her Muslim faith and makes many new friends. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Twenty-eight-year-old Maliha Masood, a burned-out dot-commer from Seattle, was desperately in need of some adventure and rejuvenation. So she bought a one-way ticket to the Middle East." "Pakistani-born Masood takes us on her unforgettable journey. She camps in the Sahara with a Bedouin "desert fox," is mistaken for a spy in Turkey, gets a lesson in beauty from a Kurdish family, and makes her way from souks and mosques to open-air lingerie bazaars. In a region associated with terrorist havens, Masood meets ordinary Muslim men and women navigating the everyday politics of culture, religion, and identity." "Zaatar Days, Henna Nights offers a street-savvy take on the contemporary Arab world that's seldom seen on the evening news. This is a story of discovery and faith, of making bonds and breaking stereotypes, and of finding oneself where one least expects to."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
