Her memoir, Lahore with Love: Growing Up with Girlfriends, Pakistani Style, was originally published by Syracuse University Press in 2010, and received rave reviews from both magazines and notable individuals such as NawalelSaadawi, BapsiSidhwa, Henry Louis Gates Jr., and Mandy Van Deven. Then, Syracuse University Press dropped the book after an inadmissible threat of lawsuit was issued by one of the “characters” in the memoir. Fawzia has spoken about the controversy, both in an appendix to the new edition, published by Insanity Ink Publications (self-publication), and on her website (http:fawziaafzalkhan.webs.com). The book can be purchased directly on amazon.com :http://www.amazon.com/lahore-love-growing-girlfriends-pakistani-style/dp/1456462199
