About the Book
Wasted Salt is the fictionalized narrative of two marginalized immigrant women trying to find their way in America. Zahra is a Lebanese refugee sponsored by a Baptist church in Wichita, Kansas
Noor, an Egyptian American, is a webcam model who shares the musty basement room with Zahra. During the holy month of Ramadan, Noor, who was born into a Muslim family, doesn't get naked in front of the camera; instead, she cleans houses with Zahra as her helper.
A violent lover from Noor's past resurfaces; assault and humiliation ensue. Zahra fights for Noor and for herself, and the two women shape a new reality through hard work and support from a friend.
