Paradise at H/Er Feet (Paperback)
Paradise at H/er Feet chronicles the harrowing abduction of Azra Kiani, a neurochemist whose breakthrough at a New York university unveils a micronutrient treatment for depressive disorders that could cost Big Pharma 15 billion a year. Fearing for their safety, her colleague Latif Gupta flees to Montr al with Azra's son, Yusuf, whom Azra adopted from a fundamentalist madrassa. Together they attempt to unravel the web of deception between corporate corruption and insidious politics that led to Azra's disappearance. The heart-wrenching story propelled by fear shuttles back and forth between Azra's attempts to identify the source of her abduction and locate Yusuf, and the painstaking process Yusuf undergoes as he sheds his fundamentalist ideals and navigates the minefield of her transgender identity.
