Love, InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women (Soft Skull Press; $15.95) takes on the commonly held belief that Muslim women are all oppressed, submissive, forced into arranged marriages, and hiding explosives under their clothes. Using 24 real portraits of Muslim women all across the country, author Ayesha Mattu and Nura Maznavi reveal that Muslim women flirt, date, have sex, and yes, seek love just like the rest of us. “An intimate, brutally honest anthology,”—The Christian Science Monitor. Mattu is a human rights consultant and photographer. Maznavi is a civil right attorney.
