Told from the point of view of a young Pakistani in NY, this book provides lots to think about on the topic of race, alienation and U.S. foreign policy, within a very personal story. Brilliant on audio. Mohsin Hamid is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.
Something about the tone, the structure, and the foreboding mood set by the protagonist's "first person" narrative that was reminescent of Poe's "Cask of the Amontillado".
An intriguing look at the post 9/11 world through the eyes of a brilliant young muslim man,as he tells the story of his journey from Princeton scholar to a prize position with a prestigious New York financial firm and back to his roots in Pakistan. The tale is related to a mysterious American stranger over a meal in a mysterious small cafe...mesmerizing on audio.
