Yes, I'm Hot in This: The Hilarious Truth about Life in a Hijab
Hardback, 192 pages
Popular Instagram cartoonist and Muslim-American Huda Fahmy presents a hilarious, relatable, and painfully honest new collection of comics that break down barriers and show how universal our everyday problems, worries, and joys actually are. At some point in our lives, we've all felt a little out of place. Huda Fahmy has found it's a little more difficult to fade into the crowd when wearing a hijab.
In Yes, I'm Hot in This, Huda navigates the sometimes-rocky waters of life from the unique perspective of a Muslim-American woman, breaking down misconceptions of her culture one comic at a time. From recounting the many questions she gets about her hijab every day (yes, she does have hair) and explaining how she runs in an abaya (just fine, thank you) to dealing with misconceptions about Muslims, Yes, I'm Hot in This tackles universal feelings from an point of view we don't hear from nearly enough. Every one of us have experienced love, misunderstanding, anger, and a deep desire for pizza.
In Yes, I'm Hot in This, Huda's clever comics demonstrate humour's ability to bring us together, no matter how different we may appear on the surface.
