Review: The Girl Who Fell to Earth

The Girl Who Fell to Earth The Girl Who Fell to Earth by Sophia Al-Maria
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read this as part of my focus on the Middle East this year. Sophia Al-Maria is a Qatari-American artist, filmmaker, and writer who moved back and forth between Doha and Puyallup as a child. Her father is actually Bedouin and within his generation his family had to pick a more permanent place to live and stop moving through the peninsula (which was not always a positive - she describes her aunts as watching a lot of television.) And then Sophia/Safiya strikes out on her own, which was exciting too.
