Tahmima Anam was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh. She was selected as a Granta Best of Young British Novelist 2013.

Tahmima Anam was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Her first novel, A Golden Age, was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and the Costa First Novel Award in 2007, and was the winner of the 2008 Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best First Book. Her second novel, The Good Muslim, was shortlisted for the 2013 DSC Prize for South Asian Literature and was also longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize 2011.

Anam’s fluent prose and sharp insights are at their best when the narrative strays. into the surreal ways in which faith and love work-and sometimes fail. The Good Muslim brims with gripping narrative, absorbing history and Shakespearean moral conundrums. A keen examination of survival and forgiveness. Anam has an eye for culture, and for cultural dissonance. The writer’s gift is to make the unfamiliar understood.
