How to be a Bad Muslim is the elegant, debut non-fiction offering from award-winning New Zealand writer, poet and journalist Mohamed Hassan. It maps the personal and public experience of being Muslim through a lens of identity, Islamophobia, surveillance, migration and language.

Also a poet, Hassan’s work has been shared widely online, and is taught in hundreds of schools across the world. He has toured New Zealand, Australia, the US and UK, appeared at TEDx, and the Cheltenham Literature Festival, and he represented NZ at the Individual World Poetry Slam in 2016. Hassan was nominated for an Online Media Award in 2018 for his work covering the Israel/Palestine conflict, and his RNZ podcast Public Enemy was awarded the Gold Trophy at the 2017 New York Festivals Radio Awards.

Hassan speaks authentically and piercingly on mental health, grief and loss, while weaving memories of an Egyptian immigrant fighting. In this special conversation with Rosabel Tan, he speaks about this illuminating and powerful collection of essays.
