Reviews:

'Absorbing' -- The Bookseller

'A moving, important work: beautifully drawn.' -- Preti Taneja

‘A beautiful and bittersweet book about heritage and identity, finding oneself and one's way in the world.’ -- Nikesh Shukla

'Conjures auto-bio trailblazers like Alison Bechdel and Craig Thompson. A touchstone in the making, this is the book I’ve been waiting for.' -- Nyla Ahmad

'A razor-sharp, resilient and generous view of what it means to believe, belong and breathe within spaces that are designed to keep you out.' <span>-- </span>Zeba Ta lkhani

'Wonderfully intelligent and balanced… a moving, wide-ranging and uplifting account of a second-generation immigrant's voyage of self-discovery.’ -- Umi Sinha

'One of the most poignant graphic novels I've read. A fascinating, informative and aesthetically stunning read.' -- Benjamin Worku-Dix, PositiveNegatives

"Uncompromisingly honest... there's a constant sense of fragility to her narrative, a delicateness, a vulnerability... and yet there is also an undeniable inner strength. Khan has an artistic style that deceives the reader in its elegantly stripped back simplicity. [...]This is [a book] that you'll never stop fully unpacking, unpicking and reflecting upon." -- Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier

'What a cherishable book! This probing, perceptive exploration of diaspora dilemmas, and Khan's own struggle to separate from her family and understand the roots of its often oppressive norms, will speak to the children of immigrants of every stripe and those who want to understand them. Moving and irresistible.'

--Anne Karpf, Professor of Life Writing and Culture
