I can definitely tell that this book was written to shock people. The copy that I picked up in Beirut actually turns out to be a bit censored, and when I looked up what had been taken out online, it was often (but not always) something completely gratuitous and offensive.
Home is the story of Andrews’ life before the point that I became familiar with her. Much of the book talks about her early life, particularly her childhood, and the struggles that she and her family went through in post-war England.
If you want to read a book about rock music in the Muslim world, this book is it.
To be completely honest, I had never heard of Ahmad (or Junoon) until I saw the synopsis for this book. Not that I’m usually particularly “up” on these kinds of things, but I just thought that I should mention it.
