Suzanne LaGrande interviews Ayser Salman, writer, editor, and author of The Wrong End of the Table: A Mostly Comic Memoir of a Muslim Arab American Woman Just Trying to Fit In. In this episode of Disobedient Femmes, Salman traces her unlikely journey from Baghdad to Hollywood, by way of Ohio, Saudi Arabia, and Kentucky. First comes Immigration, then Naturalization, and finally Assimilation—trying to fit in among her blonde-haired, blue-eyed counterparts, but always feeling left out. Part memoir and part how-not-to guide, The Wrong End of the Table is everything you wanted to know about Arabs but were afraid to ask, as well as the story of every American outsider on a path to find themselves in a country of beautiful diversity.
