A true outsider, Michael was raised Catholic but converted to Islam after reading Alex Haley’s Autobiography of Malcolm X. He has written several novels and his 2002 novel The Taqwacores (described as a Catcher in the Rye for young Muslims) was made into a feature film that just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
