My Past is a Foreign Country: A Muslim Feminist Finds Herself by Zeba Talkhani

My Past is a Foreign Country: A Muslim Feminist Finds Herself by Zeba Talkhani is an autobiography. The book hit the shelves in June 2019. It has been published by Hachette India.

28-year-old Zeba Talkhani charts her experiences growing up in Saudi Arabia amid patriarchal customs reminiscent of The Handmaid’s Tale, and her journey to find freedom in India, Germany, and the UK.
Talkhani offers a fresh perspective on living as an outsider and examines her relationship with her mother and the challenges she faced when she experienced hair loss at a young age.

Rejecting the traditional path her culture had chosen for her, Talkhani became financially independent and married on her own terms in the UK. Drawing on her personal experiences Talkhani shows how she fought for the right to her individuality as a Muslim feminist and refused to let negative experiences define her.
