I was gripped from the first paragraph by this compelling, intricate portrait of a group of Egyptians living in Chicago. The author gives insight into the varied and personal range of Muslim belief and practice, and reflects on the far-reaching effects of corrupt governments. Political and personal, this book often feels more like a series of intertwined short stories than a novel.
