520    Star-studded and beautifully written, this collection 
       offers diverse stories about love and desire by South 
       Asian-heritage British Muslim women authors, including 
       Ayisha Malik (Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged) and Shelina 
       Janmohamed (Love in a Headscarf). Although outsiders often
       expect Muslim women to be timid, conservative, or 
       submissive, the reality is different. While some of these 
       authors express a quiet piety and explore poignant 
       situations, others use black humor and biting satire, or 
       play with possibilities. Still others shade into the 
       territory of a Muslim Fifty Shades of Grey, creating grey 
       areas where the mainstream media sees only black and 
       white. If grooming-gang scandals grab headlines, 
       characters are more scandalized by suitors' sloppy 
       personal grooming. Finding the right crimson lipstick for 
       a date or the perfect power outfit for meeting a cheating 
       ex-husband are commoner preoccupations than the news. 
       Stylish but far from shallow, the stories also reflect on 
       migration, racism, arranged marriage, gender differences, 
       lesbian desire, bearding, and many other subjects.
