Product Description

Magical' KANEEZ SURKA'Funny, intense, thoughtful' FARAH BASHIR'A rare, precious memoir' NATASHA BADHWARWhen Shubnum Khan signed up for a photoshoot as part of an art project in college, she hadn’t imagined that the photographs would be plastered on billboards and advertisements all over the world. Two years on, her smiling face had sold condos in Mumbai and Florida, drawn subscribers to dating websites and convinced desperate customers of the supposed wonders of skin-lightening creams. This is but one of the many astounding misadventures she chronicles in How I Accidentally Became a Global Stock Photo and Other Strange and Wonderful Stories.In this part memoir, part travelogue, Shubnum takes the reader on unpredictable journeys far from her family home in South Africa. Whether it’s going off the grid in the Himalayas, getting pulled out of the ocean in Turkey or becoming a bride on a rooftop in Shanghai, she is quirky, moving and vulnerable in what she shares. All the while, she reflects on what it means to be a woman, especially a single Muslim woman, in the modern world.Drawing from her diverse personal experiences, Shubnum shows us how to courageously take on life's most absurd surprises with good humour and a fistful of hope. Her book is a helpful reminder that once ‘you step off the edge, anything can happen’.
