HOW TO BE A BAD MUSLIM: MOHAMED HASSAN
Mohamed Hassan’s life has taken him from Cairo to New Zealand and on to Istanbul and London, covering the Middle East, Turkey and Asia Pacific as a journalist. Through it all he has developed a keen eye for questions of identity and culture, which he beautifully brings to bear in his non-fiction essay collection How to Be a Bad Muslim. Ranging across surveillance, migration, language, Islamophobia and the Christchurch attacks, it is a compelling account of growing up Muslim in a post- 9/11 world, told with humour and astute observation. A former slam poetry champion and prize-winning podcaster, Hassan joins Mike McRoberts in conversation.
