Unicorn-levels of rare beauty in this memoir âAnd what is acting besides a sublimation of childhood trauma in order to get an agent?â It is in such hilarious and outrageous yet pithily insightful lines that Amrou Al-Kadhiâs fabulous book Unicorn: The Memoir of a Muslim Drag Queen makes its case for being that rare mix of funny, relatable and honest which is at the core of most good autobiographical writing. In truth Amrouâs book is actually kind of unfair in how good it is; a talented drag queen has no need to have written one of the best…
Funny, educational, moving and uplifting, this incredible book is a âmust readâ for everyone. I cannot praise this book highly enough. This is a truly wonderful account of the journey of love, innocence and a search for a place to belong. Brave and inspiring, I would recommend this overwhelming and beautifully written book to anyone and everyone, and dare you not to have your eyes opened and your heart broken.
This book will light up your life Amrou writes with incredible clarity as they recount their amazing journey from the Middle East to the drag stages of London and beyond. This book has particular significance to queer people and people of colour, but it is ultimately a more universal story of being your true self against the odds. It has the perfect balance of humour and pathos, and it may be a clichÃ© but it really did make me laugh and cry. Highly recommend!
