A hilarious dark comedy about the price of success and a biting look at what has gone wrong with American foreign policy in the Middle East, Jameela Green Ruins Everything is a compulsively readable, yet unexpectedly touching story of one woman’s search for meaning and connection.
Airing on CBC Gem in 2022
Zarqa’s knack of finding the funny in serious situations will have you laughing out loud.
Zarqa Nawaz is one very Funny Lady, the Sultana of the Sardonic, maybe even the Imamma of the Ironic.
Unafraid to push buttons with a feisty, feminist twist, Nawaz cites Nora Efron as her writing spirit guide.
It’s astonishing how well Zarqa barrels forward with her beliefs with unabashed conviction—and a good dose of humour.
