Storying Relationships: Young British Muslims Speak and Write about Sex and Love (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Storing Relationships

explores the sexual lives of young British Muslims in their own words and through

their own stories. It finds engaging and surprising stories in a variety of

settings: when young people are chatting with their friends; conversing more

formally within families and communities; scribbling in their diaries; and

writing blogs, poems and books to share or publish.


stories are interesting to read and to hear, but they also have wider

significance because they challenge stereotypes about Muslims, who are

portrayed as unhappy in love and sexually different, even dangerous. The young

people who emerge in this book, contradicting racist and Islamophobic

stereotypes, are assertive and creative, finding and making their own ways in

matters of the body and the heart.


stories - about single life, meeting and dating, pressure and expectations,

sex, love, marriage and dreams - are at once specific to the young British

Muslims who tell them, and resonant reflections of human experience.
