The Incidental Muslim: Undiluted Perspectives on Life, Love and Pop Culture

The Incidental Muslim is an honest, witty and heartfelt collection of columns and new musings by writer Amal Awad. Growing up in Australia as a hybrid identity (Arab-Australian-Muslim), Amal has unique insights on career, life, love and feminism. A passionate moviegoer and TV buff, she also considers her love of storytelling and how Hollywood just can't get their portrayals of Muslims right. More specifically, she bemoans the lack of the incidental Muslim - the character who just happens to be a Muslim, rather than the usual three Cs: cab drivers, convenience store owners or crackpots. Excerpt from The Incidental Muslim 'Like any teenager, I had modest career aspirations. In my case, I would take singing lessons in order to develop my singing voice, before proceeding on to an illustrious career in musical theatre. My 'Everest' was to play Christine in Phantom of the Opera, though being the reasonable character that I am, Maria in West Side Story would have kept me equally satisfied. The only real, and I suppose rather significant, dent in the plan was that I was growing up Muslim.'
Praise for The Incidental Muslim 'Despite what the title may suggest, The Incidental Muslim is a privileged insight into the life of, yes - a Muslim woman. Snapshots of the author's life, from childhood to student and now a writer, endear us to a world that turns out to be unmistakably familiar. Such is the uniqueness of Amal Awad's voice: it actually represents the women of today, whether they are Muslim or not.' - Liana Rosnita, editor, Aquila Style
