"From the very first page I could not stop reading The Coin; the narrative voice is so convincing, utterly compelling. The novel’s protagonist is a young, wealthy Palestinian woman living in NYC, who teaches at a private boys’ school. Obsessed with the city’s dirt and grime, she shuttles between work and home with an attentive, caustic eye toward her fellow commuters. In the classroom her unorthodox teaching style confuses and delights her students in turn. From the first page, you know that this woman is off-kilter, and you want to follow her story wherever this accomplished author will take you. Funny and poignant with echoes of Kang and Moshfegh, Yasmin Zaher is a writer to watch." -Lori
