Critics’ Reviews

Mother Superior is superb. Saleema Nawaz writes with grace and compassion about a sisterhood of young
women facing down their demons and developing faith in themselves.” — Neil Smith

“These brilliant multicultural fables are peopled by an amazingly diverse and memorable cast of characters.
Saleema Nawaz gives us a new, humane, and deeply embodied way of understanding our communities. Her observations are
pitch-perfect, and her prose scintillates.” — Warren Cariou

“Make room for one wild new writer. Nawaz is going to dazzle you with her style, her remarkable sense of things in
this world, her plain out-and-out talent. This is a new arrival who knows what she is doing and you will want to know
that too. A book you will read with new pleasure.” — Dennis Cooley
