Product Description

Tabish Khair is a critically acclaimed author and poet whose recent novels have been shortlisted for the Encore Award (UK) and the Crossword Prize (India). He has won the All India Poetry Prize, and his novels have been shortlisted for various major awards and translated into several languages. The Thing about Thugs was shortlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize (2010) and the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature (2012). His works include Where Parallel Lines Meet (2000) and How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position (2012). Having worked as a journalist in India, he currently teaches English at Aarhus University, Denmark.

High-school best friends Ameena and Jamilla couldn't be more different: while one smokes cigarettes in their school playground, the other is a member of her mosque's discussion group in suburban Yorkshire. When heartbreak and doubt leave Ameena bereft and alone, she turns to Jamilla's beloved Allah for solace and purpose.

It is then that both girls find themselves entranced by a powerful Internet preacher-Hejjiye, a woman running an orphanage home in support of the men fighting in the name of jihad. Leaving their families and country behind, they run to join the Islamic State in Syria to serve a cause they unquestioningly believe in.

However, things begin to change for the worse once Ameena marries Hassan, a jihadi leader, and suddenly Jamilla begins to see the world that she left everything for differently. Getting out is almost impossible, but there is one way. Will the girls choose a path which might change their lives beyond recognition?

Heart-wrenching, masterful and stunningly powerful, Jihadi Jane paints a vivid picture of militant-brides operating around the world and the terrifying cost of religious fanaticism.
