When I was in South Africa two months ago, the locals I was hanging out with told me I should read a book by their friend, Azad Essa. Essa is Al-Jazeera journalist whose book Zuma’s Bastard, a hit in South Africa last year, was updated and released by HarperCollins India in April as The Moslems Are Coming. I came back to New York and made quite a spectacle out of myself, bursting out into fits of maniacal giggles while reading it on the subway, in parks, and at countless other very public places. This provocative, witty book is definitely my pick for summer must-read – check out my Q&A with Essa to learn more.
