Praise for KAUTHAR

‘This is a novel that cuts into the heart of a modern taboo – the white British female who chooses to become a Muslim – with sensitivity and insight… Meike Ziervogel grew up in Germany and came to London to study Arabic; her strong, spare writing cuts to the heart of a shocking story.’

Kate Saunders, THE TIMES

'Ziervogel goes bravely to the bleakest points of humanity and illuminates them with her lyrical and enthralling prose... It is a book that demands to be swallowed in one sitting, despite its bitter contents; one that, in its intensity, resonates and echoes for days after finishing it.'

Claire Hazelton, GUARDIAN
