Image: Sahar Mustafah. Mustafah sits at a wooden table, holding a coffee cup and smiling at the camera. In the foreground are two books, her short story collection and her debut novel; their covers are mostly a mix of yellows, oranges, pinks, and browns. Mustafah wears a long-sleeved black turtleneck and large hoop earrings. Behind her is a Hyde Park street, and natural light comes through the window. Photo by Mark Blanchard.
