That Can Be Arranged: A Muslim Love Story

by Huda Fahmy Author

Comics artist Huda Fahmy shares the story of how she met and married her husband Gehad. If you're Muslim-American, you'll likely relate hard to the gossiping aunties, family expectations, societal prejudices, and on-the-nose sheikh advice. If you're not, you'll get an honest (and witty!) account of arranged marriage as it's supposed to work, with a balance of independent choice, family and community relationships, and religious tradition. Famhy is smart, funny, brimming with agency, and happily partnered. And hopefully she'll keep making more funny comics about her life!
