I Can't Think Straight

No comments :
Last month I had the pleasure of seeing the film "I Can't Think Straight" and bought the book when it came out (so to speak) on Amazon this month. The story is an autobiographical account of the romance between an upper-class Christian Palestinian (Tala) and a Muslim Indian woman (Leyla) that challenges cultural norms and family tradition. The print version is much funnier than the film--it provides humorous depictions of both women's passive-aggressive, interfering mothers as well as more in-depth portrayals of the inner conflicts that arise within Leyla and Tala as they confront their latent homosexual tendencies. All-in-all a highly recommended breezy, stimulating read! Hopefully the DVD will be out soon.
