About the Book

Finished book mailing to professors of contemporary fiction

Critical Praise

“Egyptian author Al Aswany weaves a vivid tapestry of clashing cultures in post 9/11 Chicago. . . . The characters are beautifully realized [and] each of the story lines is individually compelling.” - Publishers Weekly

“...Al Aswany’s knack for making the personal political.” - New York magazine

“While the book explores political points, it’s ultimately a pluralist drama, complete with cliffhangers.” - Washington Post Express

“Aswany sensitively probes the nature of courage and patriotism. . . . [T]he story moves in surprising directions, and the ambiguity of life is well reflected in an unabashedly untidy conclusion. - The New Yorker

“Al Aswany writes about his Egyptian characters with charm, gentle humor, and genuine conviction.” - New York Times Book Review
