The Reluctant Fundamentalist
By Mohsin Hamid
A table in an outdoor cafe in Lahore Pakistan, two men, one evening, a tale that is both simplistic and complicated. Told in a dramatic narrative form, Changez details his recent years to man who could either be a friend or foe, the reader is never sure. A top student, from an old Pakistani family, Changez graduated from Princeton and was living in NYC, working at an upscale financial establishment. He was a shining star at work, had a blossoming friendship with Erica, a beautiful fellow Princeton graduate and was enjoying an expense account for the first time in his life. And then it is September 11, 2001. Changez recounts his sense of betrayal, loss and confusion to his newfound dinner companion. How his life and future changed in an instant. One of the most unique styles of writing I have ever encountered. A story that will fill your imagination with images and your heart with questions. Do not miss this extraordinary read.
