Ramadan Mubarak! We're happily loopy from our first week of fasting. In this episode, Ahmed talks to New York Times best-selling novelist, Fatima Farheen Mirza. Her novel, “A Place For Us,” explores the relationships between the children and parents of a Hyderbadi Muslim family and what happens when a brown boy doesn’t meet family and community expectations. It's kind of like that Warsan Shire tweet — "my dj name is dj eldest immigrant daughter." Plus: Salimah, Fatima, and Ahmed share their favorite suhoor memories.
