A memoir with a hilarious twist from one of Britain's leading female Muslim writers, Love in a Headscarf is an entertaining, fresh and unmissable insight into what it means to be a young British Muslim woman. Shelina Janmohamed is a columnist for the Muslim News and EMEL magazine and regularly contributes to the Guardian., the BBC and Channel 4.
