How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position (2012)

how-to-fight-islamist-novel-tabish-khari-uk

Shortlisted for Prix de l'Inapercu, 2014 (France)

  • The Times (on Saturday), UK: Khair writes brilliantly about racism, and the misunderstanding between rich and poor. Unmissable.

  • The Independent, UK: Who wouldn’t be struck by a title like this, with its mix of fundamentalism and sniggering sexual reference? Surely, it can only lead to all-title-and-no-trousers disappointment. No, not at all. In fact, the title is nowhere near as irreverent, intelligent, and explosive as the slowly detonated bomb of a story inside.

  • At less than 200 pages, Khair pulls off a brisk, bitingly funny narrative that manages to make some astute points about both Islamic extremism and the Western penchant for stereotyping without drawing anything like a false equivalence. And for a book so concise and witty, it is also surprisingly textured.

The Asian Age: “The message may be serious but the skill and subtlety with which it is delivered, wrapped with so much fun and irreverence, is outstanding. Go get your copy, now.”

Indra Sinha, author of Animal’s People: “The final joy of this magnificently disreputable novel is the realization that, like all great books, it has actually been reading you.”

The Huffington Post: “This is a fast-paced, hilarious novel that nonetheless has sufficient depth to withstand several re-readings. If there's any justice, it's going to be … a hit in Euro-America.” (Claire Chambers)
