'Aboulela paints a fascinating picture of intercultural strife ... Aboulela has chosen a complex structure and keeps perfect control of it. Beautifully written, restrained and lyrical, Minaret is both thought-provoking and disturbing'
'This is the modern female voice ... young, fresh, diverse, challenging, uninhibited'
'This is a beautiful, daring, challenging novel'
'Instead of the coming-of-age novel, we have here perhaps the beginnings of a coming-to-faith genre. The subject matter is important, and Aboulela makes an informed escort into this world'
