Review

At once vulnerable and intellectually rigorous, here is an illuminating and trenchant exploration of Muslim feminism . . . An essential read in the war against lazy stereotypes, cultural annihilation and every form of apartheid -- DINA NAYERI - * Guardian *

A wonderful book about the deep backstories and the tangled histories of N. S. Nuseibeh's own multiple identit[ies]. She is self-deprecating and thoughtful and always interesting, a rare instance of a writer who seems to listen as much as she informs -- MARK HADDON

A wonderfully inventive blend of personal insight and contemporary commentary with Islamic history, myth and culture . . . Intuitive and profound - * Big Issue *

A raw and dazzling essay collection about identity and how the personal is inseparable from the general - * Foreword *

A refreshing, timely read at a time dominated by anger and despair . . . [Nuseibeh] unapologetically considers her own life's struggle as enmeshed in structural violence, rightly placing the individual within a political context - * Middle East Eye *

A thoughtful, insightful, recommended collection of essays on Palestinian experiences that connects history with contemporary societies . . . Nuseibeh dispels common stereotypes that many Westerners have about Palestinians, especially Palestinian women - * Library Journal *

N.S. Nuseibeh conjures her diverse identities and interests to create a world that is free and hospitable . . . Namesake explores vulnerability, fragility, anxiety and ambivalence as ways of beautifully coming to terms with the wounds and worries of the world -- HOMI K. BHABHA

Namesake is a brilliantly written book that will enrich how you think about feminism, identity, connection and home. A collection of fascinating and rigorous essays, it's a generous, intimate invitation to reflect on the different ways we might understand ourselves and one another -- OCTAVIA BRIGHT

A masterful tapestry . . . Illuminating not only the layers of a physical landscape shaped by empire and colonialism, but of our mental landscapes of myth and story. Probing questions of identity, inheritance, faith, feminism and home -- ERICA BERRY

Nuseibeh deftly probes a wide range of topics - history, feminism, religion, culture, nostalgia, racism, violence, anxiety, illness and motherhood - in ways that are deeply personal, specific and nuanced . . . Perhaps most beautifully and importantly, Nuseibeh's writing demands of her what it asks of her reader: self-examination, honesty and grace. It's no small thing to achieve in writing something so deeply personal that also graciously extends to others -- DIMA ALZAYAT
