McSweeney’s to publish “The Domestic Crusaders” – A Play about a Muslim American Family


Dear Friends and Readers of GOATMILK,

We’d like to officially announce that the great publisher, McSweeney’s, will be publishing the play “The Domestic Crusaders”: A 2 Act play about a  Muslim American Family, “one of the first major plays about Muslim Americans” (SF Chronicle, BBC) in FALL 2010.

Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Toni Morrison: This play is brilliant. Moving. Shapely. Clever. Funny. And the cast is amazing!”

Academy Award Winning Actress and Writer Emma Thompson: The Domestic Crusaders is exactly the sort of theater we need today. The gulf that separates cultures must be bridged and Art is one of our best hopes. I’ll be supporting this all the way – please join me and Wajahat in building this bridge!”

McSweeney’s will also include the play as part of its excellent, award winning literary journal “McSweeney’s Quarterly #36.” We can’t give away the all the surprises, but readers will be in for a treat. So, if you’re a subscriber you’ll get the play for free! If not, you must subscribe now!

In the meantime, please do pickup McSweeney’s #34 that just went on sale and contains the riveting stand alone book, The End of Major Combat Operations. The book is reportage from Iraq, with really incisive attention to the Iraqi experience.

So, there you have it! The Domestic Crusaders should be out in FALL 2010. Please do pick up a copy.

The Domestic Crusaders is exactly the sort of theater we need today. The gulf that separates cultures must be bridged and Art is one of our best hopes. I’ll be supporting this all the way – please join me and Wajahat in building this bridge!”
