LIFE AS A UNICORN A Journey from Shame to Pride and Everything in Between

by | Read by Amrou Al-Kadhi

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Amrou Al-Kadhi's gentle voice will capture listeners' hearts in this honest, moving, and often funny memoir about coming of age as a queer nonbinary Muslim. Al-Kadhi recounts their sense of otherness as a child in Bahrain and their teen years in the UK, focusing on their attempts to assimilate into white British culture and their complicated relationship with their mother. Their performance is engaging and compassionate; in the sections about finding self-acceptance and community as a drag queen one can hear the stage presence in their voice. Al-Kadhi also deals with many difficult subjects, including self-hatred and persistent racism. They tell their story in a quiet, graceful tone--sometimes sad, sometimes humorous--that will resonate with anyone who's struggled to discover and celebrate a multifaceted identity.
