Haramacy amplifies under-represented voices. Tackling topics previously left unspoken, this anthology offers a space for writers to explore ideas that mainstream organisations overlook. Focusing on the experiences of 12 Middle Eastern and South Asian writers, the essays explore visibility, invisibility, love, strength and race, painting a picture of what it means to feel fractured – both in the UK and back home.
The book features contributions by novelists, journalists, and artists including Aina J Khan, Ammar Kalia, Cyrine Sinti, Joe Zadeh, Kieran Yates, Nasri Atallah, Nouf Alhimiary, Saleem Haddad and Sanjana Varghese, as well as essays by editors Dhruva Balram, Tara Joshi, and Zahed Sultan.
To celebrate the release of Haramacy, Commun will be hosting an atypical evening that includes a Q&A with the editors, speed dating with the authors, short film screenings, pop up performances, and food & drinks by Toum & Tahini to bring you closer to the people that made this book possible from our shared communities.
