A Dutiful Boy: A Memoir of Secrets, Lies and Family Love

A Dutiful Boy: A Memoir of Secrets, Lies and Family Love - Mohsin Zaidi

A Dutiful Boy: A Memoir of Secrets, Lies and Family Love


WINNER OF THE 2021 LAMBDA LITERARY AWARD FOR GAY MEMOIR/BIOGRAPHY

A Guardian Best Book of the Year
A GQ Best Book of the Year
A New Statesman Best Book of the Year

A Dutiful Boy is Mohsin's personal journey from denial to acceptance: a revelatory memoir about the power of love, belonging, and living every part of your identity.

An inspiring and hopeful coming of age memoir about growing up queer in a strict Muslim household

Mohsin grew up in a poor pocket of east London, in a devout shia Muslim community. His family were close-knit and religiously conservative. From a young age, Mohsin felt different but in a home where being gay was inconceivable he also felt very alone. Outside of home Mohsin went to a failing inner city school where gang violence was a fact of life. As he grew up life didn't seem to offer teenage Mohsin any choices: he was disenfranchised from opportunity and isolated from his family as a closet gay Muslim. But Mohsin had incredible drive and became the first person from his school to go to Oxford University. At university came the newfound freedom to become the man his parents never wanted him to be. But when he was confronted by his father and a witch doctor invited to 'cure' him Mohsin had to make a difficult choice. Mohsin's story takes harrowing turns but it is full of life and humor, and, ultimately, it is an inspiring story about breaking through life's barriers.
'A beautifully written, heartrending story of a young gay man's journey, liberation and love. A real page-turner that sparks with humanity and hope'
Lord Michael Cashman
