Bushra Rehman 

“Writing from life can be a tricky business,” notes Rehman. It’s an art that Rehman has deftly honed in both her poetry and fiction, and which she teaches in her long-running “Two Truths and a Lie” course. Rehman’s novel, Corona, and her recent poetry collection, Marianna’s Beauty Salon, evokes gasps of recognition, tears of rage, and howls of laughter from her readers—especially from those shut out for too long from literary representation. Her first YA novel Corona: Stories of a Queens Girlhood by Tor Books/Macmillan is hitting bookstores next year.
