Product Details


“Sofia Ali-Khan’s A Good Country beautifully weaves together history and deeply personal narrative as it unwinds the classic immigrant belief in the ‘American Dream.’ . . . Compelling, enjoyable, engaging, and so full of purpose and conviction.”—R. Cielo Cruz, Southern racial justice activist, educator, and writer

“How can a book with such hard truths be so beautiful? Sofia Ali-Khan has woven the search for her identity and home with an exploration of racism and economic exploitation at the center of the American myth. This book should be in the curriculum for every high school senior.”—Suzanne Pharr, co-founder of Southerners on New Ground (SONG) and author of Transformation: Toward a People’s Democracy

“Readers of this powerful memoir will benefit from Ali-Khan’s brave soul-searching, comprehensive research, and beautiful storytelling.”—Priscilla Warner, New York Times bestselling author of The Faith Club

“A stunning and beautiful memoir of the author’s experience as a Muslim woman in a post-9/11, post-Trump America. Interweaves the personal and the political . . . an enthralling illumination of how history persists to shape present-day relations.”—Lisa Stampnitzky, PhD, lecturer in politics at the University of Sheffield and author of Disciplining Terror: How Experts Invented “Terrorism”

“Both memoir and historical narrative, A Good Country is an American story about an American dream reserved for White people living on stolen land. . . . Sometimes the journey to fighting oppression means escaping from an inhospitable if not burning house. Sofia Ali-Khan has arrived at the right time.—David A. Love, JD, professor, journalist, and contributing author to the New York Times bestseller Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America 1619–2019
