Rahila Khan short story writer.

Rahila Khan had six of her stories about Asian girls and white boys in England broadcast on the BBC in 1986 and then published by Virago. The five stories about white boys were in the first person, while the seven about Muslim girls are in the third. There was no problem with Rahila writing about white boys in the first person.

When it came out that Rahila was the Reverend Toby Forward (1950 - ), there was a brouhaha, and Virago pulped all remaining copies.

Rev Forward has since been installed as canon residentiary and preceptor of Liverpool Cathedral, and has become an established children’s author under his own name.
