An extraordinary personal journey from Islamic fundamentalism to a new life in the west In this spellbinding portrayal of a life that few Americans can imagine, Ali Eteraz tells the story of his schooling in a "madrassa" in Pakistan, his teenage years as a Muslim American in the Bible Belt, and his voyage back to Pakistan to find a pious Muslim wife. This lyrical, penetrating saga from a brilliant new literary voice captures the heart of our universal quest for identity and the temptations of religious extremism. (BIP)
