The Reluctant Fundamentalist Links

Due some complex issues in my “real life” I haven’t been able to write the kind of reviews and commentary I would like. Finding the right combination of time, energy, and concentration just hasn’t been possible. The Enemy at Home is a book I had hoped to review and discuss at some length, but it just didn’t happen (I still might circle around to it at some point).

Moshin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist is another book I have been meaning to cover here but so far haven’t. I think I am on the verge of offering a review, however, so I thought I would offer some links to whet your whistle for my own review/discussion.

– Vikram Johri has a review in the Philly Inquirer: A perplexing shift to hatred of America.

– Also, in the Inquirer is an interview with Hamid by John Freeman: Author loves U.S., but says, ‘My world has been split apart’.

– Freeman also had a discussion with Hamid in February.

– The Book was featured as a Barnes & Noble Recommends selection and they have a video of Hamid discussing his background, etc.

– also had an interview as part of their promotion of the book.

That should be enough to get you started. I hope to have my review up this week.
