At a café table in Lahore, a bearded Pakistani man converses with a suspicious and possibly armed American stranger. As dusk deepens to night, he begins the tale that has brought them to this fateful meeting. Changez is living an immigrant’s dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by Underwood Samson, an elite firm that specializes in the valuation of companies ripe for acquisition. He thrives on the energy of New York. But in the wake of 9/11, he finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned. And Changez’s own identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and perhaps even love.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A tale of enormous tension—more exciting than any thriller I’ve read in a long time.” Philip Pullman, bestselling author of the His Dark Materials series
“Elegant and chilling…his tale [has] an Arabian Nights–style urgency: the end of the story may mean the death of the teller.” New York Times Book Review
“A lucid, unsettling novel.” New Yorker
“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
“This novel’s firm, steady, even beautiful voice proclaims the completeness of the soul when personal and global issues are conjoined.”  Booklist (starred review)
“It’s never clear from narrator Satya Bhabha’s focused performance whether the American is there to befriend or harm the Pakistani. Ultimately that ambiguity makes the story all the more interesting because it puts the symbolic choice in the listener’s hands.” AudioFile
“A searing and powerful account of a Pakistani in New York after 9/11.” Mira Nair, director of The Namesake
