Samia è una ragazzina di Mogadiscio. Ha la corsa nel sangue. Ogni giorno divide i suoi sogni con Alì, che è amico del cuore, confidente e primo, appassionato allenatore. Mentre intorno la Somalia è sempre più preda dell´irrigidimento politico e religioso, mentre le armi parlano sempre più forte la lingua della sopraffazione, Samia guarda lontano, e avverte nelle sue gambe magre e velocissime un destino di riscatto per il paese martoriato e per le donne somale. Gli allenamenti notturni nello stadio deserto, per nascondersi dagli occhi accusatori degli integralisti, e le prime affermazioni la portano, a soli diciassette anni, a qualificarsi alle Olimpiadi di Pechino. Arriva ultima, ma diventa un simbolo per le donne musulmane in tutto il mondo. Il suo vero sogno, però, è vincere. L´appuntamento è con le Olimpiadi di Londra del 2012. Ma tutto diventa difficile. Gli integralisti prendono ancora più potere, Samia corre chiusa dentro un burqa ed è costretta a fronteggiare una perdita lacerante, mentre il ´´fratello di tutta una vita´´ le cambia l´esistenza per sempre. Rimanere lì, all´improvviso, non ha più senso. Una notte parte, a piedi. Rincorrendo la libertà e il sogno di vincere le Olimpiadi. Sola, intraprende il Viaggio di ottomila chilometri, l´odissea dei migranti dall´Etiopia al Sudan e, attraverso il Sahara, alla Libia, per arrivare via mare in Italia.

A Muslim punk house in Buffalo, New York, inhabited by burqa-wearing riot girls, mohawked Sufis, straightedge Sunnis, Shi´a skinheads, Indonesian skaters, Sudanese rude boys, gay Muslims, drunk Muslims, and feminists. Their living room hosts parties and prayers, with a hole smashed in the wall to indicate the direction of Mecca. Their life together mixes sex, dope, and religion in roughly equal amounts, expressed in devotion to an Islamo-punk subculture, ´´taqwacore,´´ named for taqwa, an Arabic term for consciousness of the divine. Originally self-published on photocopiers and spiralbound by hand, ´´The Taqwacores´´ has now come to be read as a manifesto for Muslim punk rockers and a ´´´´Catcher in the Rye´´ for young Muslims.´´ There are three different cover colors; red, white, and blue.

Rent Boy in a Burqa: Rob Mathews
An adrenaline-filled war story that depicts the challenges of military special operations in a dangerous, boulder-filled landscape. The Company has a special secret operation planned for one of their top agents: the leaders of the Taliban and al-Qaeda terrorist groups are hiding out in Pashtun country, and they must be eliminated. The job falls to a man they have named Frank Morganan agent who stood out as a recruit at Quantico and whose skills resemble those of the legendary Vietnam assassin. The other soldiers claim Frank’s abilities as a sniper and a tracker border on the supernatural and are more than willing to complete this mission with him. Frank begins his adventure in Afghanistan with another Company-appointed soldier: An indestructible lyrical Irishman with a cutting sense of humor and a bottle of Jameson never far from hand. After the men rescue a burqa-clad young woman, they soon discover that the Company has not been honest with them and decide to take a second mate under their winga giant who quotes poetry and rap songs while he both enacts torture and lives through his own agonizing trials. They know now that oil, drugs, and greed have led to this quest; assassinating the terrorists is not their main objective. However, this still must be done. After becoming dangerously acquainted with the heroin business in the frontier provinces, Frank and his comrades continue their mission. But the lines have now blurred, and the assignment is more complicated than they expected. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Runnette.
