Praise for THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST "A brilliant book. With spooky restraint and masterful control, Hamid unpicks the underpinnings of the most recent episode of distrust between East and West. But this book does not merely excel in capturing a developing bitterness. The narrative is balanced by a love as powerful as the sinister forces gathering, even when it recedes into a phantom of hope." -- Kiran Desai, author ofThe Inheritance of Loss "Beautifully written -- what a joy it is to find such intelligent prose, such clarity of thought and exposition -- and superbly constructed. The author has managed to tighten the screw of suspense almost without our being aware it is happening, and the result is a tale of enormous tension -- more exciting than any thriller I've read for a long time, as well as being a subtle and elegant analysis of the state of our world today." -- Philip Pullman, author ofHis Dark MaterialsHamid, Mohsin is the author of 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist', published 2008 under ISBN 9780156034029 and ISBN 0156034026.
