Reviews

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 T"he Namesake"
