American Meo is a transfixing meditation on what it means to be of two places.  Born in America but deeply rooted in the culture, history, lore and generational trauma of the Meo people, Muslims from the Mewat region of India, Anisa Rahim takes us on a riveting journey through culture, history, family and her own coming of age.

     Elizabeth Gaffney, author of Metropolis and When the World Was Young
