Angry Queer Somali Boy

A Complicated Memoir

About the Book

Kidnapped by his father on the eve of Somalia’s societal implosion, Ali was taken first to the Netherlands by his stepmother, and then to Canada. Unmoored from his birth family and caught between alienating forces of Somali tradition and Western culture, Mohamed must forge his own queer coming of age.
