Coming Soon: Etaf Rum’s New Novel “Evil Eye”

Palestinian American author, business owner and former English professor Etaf Rum is following up her award-winning debut novel “A Woman is No Man” (2019) with her second, “Evil Eye.”

The main character in “Evil Eye” is Arab American Yara, raised in Brooklyn by immigrant parents. Here, headstrong Yara’s seemingly perfect life begins to unravel after a work altercation. She’s then forced to deal with remnants of a difficult childhood, superstitions, identity and the relatable desire for a more fulfilling life. 

“How to know when you’ve written something good?,” Rum has asked in the past. “When you can’t stop crying.”
