"Everyone has an overbearing aunty! Qamar’s first book is where memoir and comic book and brownness meet, with advice on how to handle pushy aunties as well as recipes and stories about dating and racism. Qamar also illustrated the book with her Lichtenstein-esque feisty Indian women reminding you to get married or call home or not to “fall in love with another nikamma.” —New York
"When I first saw [Qamar's] work, I was instantly drawn to her ability to combine whimsy with cultural criticism. . . . Hatecopy is hilarious, smart, and insightful, speaking both to particular South Asian experiences and broader issues of self-acceptance and celebrating your identity as a person of color.", LENNY
“If you think the new wave of South Asian humor is led by men—from The Big Sick's Kumail Nanjiani to Master of None's Aziz Ansari to No Man's Land's Aasif Mandvi—it's time to reckon with women like Qamar. With Trust No Aunty, her new book of Pop Art and satire, the 26-year-old Pakistani Canadian brings the experience of desi girls into the comedy limelight.” , NPR
"[A] hilarious survival guide. . . . Through her work, Qamar strives to create a space for South Asian women in the diaspora that is all their own.", Flare
“You could call Hatecopy’s series of artwork a perfect marriage of the parody comic strip style pioneered by Roy Lichtenstein and the melodramatic world of South Asian soap operas.”, Toronto Star
“Maria has perfected the art of capturing the unique, hilarious lives of us Desis.”, BuzzFeed
“Hatecopy explores the shame experienced by first and second generation South Asian Canadians who want a career in the arts.”, Vice
“Unapologetically offbeat. Some serious millennial sass.”, Vogue
“Maria Qamar’s satirical art paints a harsh, and hilarious reality of Asian culture- and it isn’t all bindi-wearing bliss.”, Dazed

Great quality, pretty much new
Worth the price
Oh, and it's really funny as well!
The print quality is great, nicely bound and beautiful colours. If you like to own books with good print and books that are unique this is worth a buy. If you are looking for a good engaging read - no.
