Read full description of the books:
THE TAQWACORES vividly depicts day-to-day life in a Muslim punk house in Buffalo, New York. Characters include Rabeya, a burqa-clad riot girl; Umar, a straightedge Sunni; Muzammil Sadiq, who struggles against orthodox Islamic homophobia; and Jehangir Tabari, a drunken Sufi saint who dreams of putting on a Muslim Punk show in Buffalo. Both entertaining and serious, THE TAQWACORES tackles sex, drugs, and yes, rock n' roll, through the prism of observant (yet all-too-human) muslim mohicans and straight edgers.

Read information about the authorMichael Muhammad Knight (born 1977) is an American novelist, essayist, and journalist. His writings are popular among American Muslim youth. The San Francisco Chronicle described him as "one of the most necessary and, paradoxically enough, hopeful writers of Barack Obama's America," while The Guardian has described him as "the Hunter S. Thompson of Islamic literature," and his non-fiction work exemplifies the principles of gonzo journalism. Publishers Weekly describes him as "Islam's gonzo experimentalist." Within the American Muslim community, he has earned a reputation as an ostentatious cultural provocateur.
He obtained a master's degree from Harvard University in 2011 and is a Ph.D. student in islamic studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
