This haunting is felt most keenly by Maya, a doctor returning home after some years away. The greatest shock for progressive Maya is encountering her beloved brother, who has sunk his horror at his own involvement in the war into the comforts of extreme religious conservatism. As the novel progresses, the two characters become more entrenched in their positions and their final clash of principles is shattering yet inevitable.

Its clarity, alacrity and succession of brief, vivid scenes give the characters room to breathe. In this young man, nationalism, machismo, conservatism and denial mix to create a tragic archetype. His fervour is a crutch for his trauma, guilt and grief, his certainty built on shaky foundations.

His is a flimsy, self-constructed identity which eventually must crash down. The Good Muslim is about a national victory that does not feel like a victory, a liberation that is a damnation for many. Anam is one of a generation of writers with a subcontinental heritage whose themes are politicised and universal. The Good Muslim uses a specific history to identify issues that resonate in places and times far beyond post-independence Bangladesh, and it is this pertinence that makes The Good Muslim not just an interesting novel but an important one.
