Short pieces on experiencing cause for discontent. Well written and absolutely a must read. He is so enlightening in a deep sense. Nothing preachy but full of his heart and his life experiences. His fiction is also well worth a read. When I heard him at Malaprop's I felt so touched and inspired to read more of his work and the Reluctant Fundamentalist is a good one after How to get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia.

Recommending to everyone but most specially for teachers to use in their classes as "thinking" pieces.

On the first page my heart felt the pain engulfing the main character that I was not even familiar with. That is a good start for a novel and it gets even better.
