Description

'Astonishingly brave and engaging' Joanna Lumley

'Amazing .. it provides so much nuance to the multiverse of identity' Gay Times

'This book is as rare, fabulous and beautiful as the creature it is named for. A masterpiece of psychology, a major study of Islam and a definitive study of drag, it made me cry, it made me rage and it made me hoot. Full of anger, insight and philosophy, along with some cracking great gags, this is a magnificent and essential document of the twenty-first century. It moved my heart and soul' Russell T Davies

'A heartbreaking, healing book. it will make you better' Simon Amstell

'Astonishingly brave and engaging, Unicorn shows us a side of life seldom explored' Joanna Lumley

'Amrou's book is slightly magical, I think. They are a survivor, a storyteller and yes, a unicorn' Juno Dawson

'Amrou's story is at times painful, at times hilarious, but always completely resonant. If you've ever felt like an outsider, or caught among several identities, this book is a light in the dark and a soothing balm on the pain of loneliness and alienation' Emily V. Gordon & Kumail Nanjiani

'This is a masterpiece, an incredible emotional voyage, moving, funny, provocative, educational, a book you must read whatever your ethnicity or your sexual or gender identity. Beautifully written by an author whose voice must be heard' Owen Jones

'Amrou writes with a confidence and lightness of touch, meaning you will laugh and you will cry and you will see real tender moments in a life fully lived. An incredibly adept writer and performer, Amrou brings to readers an important story unlike anything else you will read for a long, long time, and yet so incredibly universal.' Nikesh Shukla, author of Coconut Unlimited and editor of The Good Immigrant
