June 15, 2020 via Crowdcast

Zaina Arafat’s highly anticipated debut novel You Exist Too Much is a candid story about a young Palestinian-American woman who struggles with bisexuality and love addiction. Her Arab-Muslim culture in which she grows up further complicates her intense longing for romantic connection and queer identity. Zaina was joined in conversation by Zibby Owens, creator and host of the “Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books” podcast.

“For anyone who’s ever felt their body or identity takes up too much space, this deeply affecting story of doubt and love is a gut-punch and a solace.” —Elle, 1 of 30 Most Anticipated New Books of the Summer
