Editorial Reviews

Review

PRAISE FOR THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST

“Elegant and chilling . . . his tale [has] an Arabian Nights–style urgency: the end of the story may mean the death of the teller.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Slender, smart, and subversive.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Changez’s voice is extraordinary. Cultivated, restrained, yet also barbed and passionate, it evokes the power of butler Stevens in Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Remains of the Day.”—The Seattle Times 

“A searing and powerful account of a Pakistani in New York after 9/11.”—Mira Nair, director of The Namesake

From the Inside Flap

At a café table in Lahore, a bearded Pakistani man converses with an uneasy American stranger. As dusk deepens to night, he begins the tale that has brought them to this fateful encounter …

Changez is living an immigrant’s dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by the elite valuation firm of Underwood Samson. He thrives on the energy of New York, and his budding romance with elegant, beautiful Erica promises entry into Manhattan society at the same exalted level once occupied by his own family back in Lahore.

But in the wake of September 11, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned, and his relationship with Erica eclipsed by the reawakened ghosts of her past. And Changez’s own identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and maybe even love.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a riveting, brilliantly unsettling exploration of the shadowy, unexpected connections between the political and the personal.
