LOVE IS AN EX-COUNTRY by Randa Jarrar, read by Randa Jarrar

Behind the Mic with AudioFile Magazine

Throughout this absorbing memoir-in-essays, there are moments where you can hear laughter beneath author Randa Jarrrar’s narration. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this journey across the U.S., told by Palestinian American writer and professor Jarrar. Her warm, no-nonsense tone adds levity to the heavy subject matter, which includes domestic abuse and sexual violence. But her laughing voice, sly asides and obvious affection for friends and lovers also highlight what make this a memorable listen: her exuberance, self-love, and pride in her identity as a fat, queer, Arab American woman. Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile’s website.
