    64: Rajia Hassib, author of A Pure Heart

    "Look how people handle this very complicated tangled issue of morality and look at the extent they are willing to go to justify their actions. What I was trying to get to was that we’re all flawed." - Rajia Hassib

Her first novel, In the Language of Miracles, was a New York Times Editors’ Choice and received an honorable mention from the Arab American Book Award. Her second novel, A Pure Heart, was published by Viking (Penguin) in August of 2019. She holds an MA in creative writing from Marshall University, and she has written for The New York Times Book Review, The New Yorker online, and Literary Hub.
