Arab-American and Muslim Writers discusses the authors from this rich heritage that have made lasting contributions to the American literary landscape. Authors such as Claire Messud, Mohja Kahf, Samuel Hazo, Malcolm X, Amiri Baraka, and Kahlil Gibran are among the many profiled in this new offering, which also covers the now-canonical works frequently assigned in classrooms today.

From Booklist:

“The descriptive phrase Arab American does not imply a single, unified identity,” reminds Layton in her introduction to this collective biography of American writers of Arab and Muslim descent. Noting that the authors “share only the common thread of immigration . . . in the distant or recent past,” Layton’s wide-ranging profiles include writers who were born in Arabic-speaking countries, such as Kahlil Gibran, as well as those, such as Mona Simpson, who grew up in culturally American households with a foreign-born parent. Each profile features a brief biography of the writer, but the bulk of each chapter is an in-depth analysis of major themes and works, which, when grouped together, show the authors’ diversity. Included, for example, are lucid introductions to Malcolm X’s Autobiography; Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner; and Mohja Kahf’s feminist poem “E-mails from Scheherazad.” A chronology of publications and a list of suggested resources close. The format is uninviting, with grainy black-and-white photos illustrating the too-small text. Still, this illuminating and timely entry in the Multicultural Voices series will find student demand. Grades 8-12. --Gillian Engberg

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up–Layton discusses the work of Khalil Gibran, Malcolm X, Samuel Hazo, Amiri Baraka, Naomi Shihab Nye, Mona Simpson, Khaled Hosseini, Claire Messud, and Mohja Kahf. In the overview, she provides an explanation regarding her choice of authors, stating that the only thing they share is their "diversity and their unique view of and relation to their American-ness." Each author is introduced with a biographical account, followed by an analysis and summary of a selection of his or her work. A discussion of major themes follows. This text is a welcome contribution to the gap in material about Arab-American and Muslim writers. It is particularly useful for reports.Fawzia Gilani-Williams, An-Noor School, Windsor, Ontario
