Tahar Ben Jelloun’s ‘The Happy Marriage’ review for Asymptote

This is my first published piece for Asymptote, and it was a great privilege to work with the journal’s criticism editor (and both a colleague and friend of mine), Ellen Jones. I enjoyed unravelling the web of misleading mistruths in Ben Jelloun’s novel, which tackles the issues raised by gender imbalance in marriage, particularly within Muslim communities. You can read my review here.
