Children of Dust is a 2009 book, the somewhat fictionalized memoir of Ali Eteraz. The author is a Pakistani-severalotherthings-American writer and activist. The story is following him as he grows from madrassa brat to religious snob to convictionless religious leader to activist.

----
!! This book provides examples of:
* MagicRealism: Only in South Asia/the so-called “Muslim World” and later leading back into it, thus very much portraying the region as “the other”.
* {{Squick}}: Molestation by angels.
* WeirdnessCensor: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]: To avoid having to come to terms with the harsh reality of his molestation, Abir “rationalizes” the event by considering it a supernatural occurrence, a visit from angels.
