This review is from: American Dervish: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
This story of a Pakistani-American boy growing up in middle America is a very entertaining read. The author has brought together several characters who play a very important role in the upbringing and formulation of religious opinions of Hayat, the main character. This story about a quirky family and their house guest Mina reveal very insightful and disturbing underlying issues which Pakistani American immigrants have and are still facing as a community in the US. I found the book very well written and hard to put down.
