Paperback Writer

Map of Home CoverThe paperback edition of A MAP OF HOME is now available from Penguin books.

You can get it at your local bookstore or on Amazon, Powells, or B&Noble.

About the book: Randa Jarrar’s fresh, funny and fearless debut novel chronicles the coming-of-age of Nidali, one of the most unique and irrepressible narrators in contemporary fiction. Born in 1970s Boston to an Egyptian-Greek mother and a Palestinian father, the rebellious Nidali—whose name is a feminization of the word “struggle”— soon moves to a very different life in Kuwait. There the family leads a mildly eccentric middle-class existence—until the Iraqi invasion drives them first to Egypt and then to Texas. With echoes of Jhumpa Lahiri and Marjane Satrapi, this critically acclaimed debut novel is set to capture the hearts of everyone who’s ever wondered what their own map of home might look like.

Also, I did an interview with Zocalo which you can read here.

The Austin-American Statesman profiled me in their Books section.

Electronic Intifada, which I love, reviewed my book here.
