Staff Reviews

A provocative hybrid of memoir and fiction, Akhtar traces his own political re-education as a middle class Pakistani-American from Milwaukee in the years between 9/11 and the advent of Trump — and as counterpoint to his Pakistani cardiologist father who briefly treated Donald Trump. Family drama, social indictment, a mix of outrage and ambivalence. Salman Rushdie said, "passionate, disturbing, unputdownable."

“A masterful blend of memoir and fiction, this is an unforgettable journey through the lives of a Muslim family finding their place in a post-9/11 America. A searing navigation of the loves we try to reconcile — familial, religious, societal — and the definition of home. Written with wisdom, wit, and unsparing honesty, this an important book that you will continue to contemplate for a very long time. Both intimate and epic, this is a must-read.”
