A powerful journey of self-empowerment, body positivity and mother – daughter relationships, My Past Is a Foreign Country offers a fresh perspective on living as an outsider.
Zeba Talkhani charts her experiences growing up in Saudi Arabia amid patriarchal customs and her journey to find freedom in India, Germany and the UK as a young woman.
My Past Is a Foreign Country is an inspirational tale of how Zeba came to claim her own narrative and construct her own identity and individuality as a feminist Muslim in light of the challenges faced.
Zeba Talkhani has written for the Saudi Gazette, The Manipal Journal, gal-dem, Wasafiri and the Nasty Women anthology.
Zeba will be in conversation with journalist Sarah Shaffi.
