Praise for I Am Yours
“Tender, fierce, compassionate, and wise . . . a moving story about how one woman found her voice—and her power.”—Cheryl Strayed, #1 NYT bestselling author of Wild
“My heart just burst into a thousand songs after reading I Am Yours by Reema Zaman. From the first word to the last, this story is phenomenal triumph of one woman’s body and voice rising up and through a culture that would quiet her. Moving through experience and language without flinching, Zaman reminds us that to have a body is to bring a soul to life. A stunning debut.”– Lidia Yuknavitch, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Joan.
“More than a memoir, I Am Yours is a spiritual guide . . . poetic, healing, and so necessary.”—Gemma Hartley, author of FED UP
About I Am Yours
I Am Yours is the story of Reema Zaman’s unwavering fight to protect and free her voice from those who have sought to silence her.

With astonishing courage and intimacy, Zaman is a reader’s author, offering up a memoir written to alleviate the loneliness that often arises from being human in this world. A voice of a new era, a revolution in itself, an iconic debut that promises to shake global literature.
