The Reluctant Fundamentalist
Changez, a Princeton graduate from Pakistan, succeeds on Wall Street, thriving in his adopted city. But in the wake of 9/11, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned and his relationships tested. His involvement with pro-Pakistan demonstrations are called into question as is his connection to a possibly extremist student. After another attack, Changez's link to the student implicates him indirectly to the group responsible, and he is forced to decide on a country, a way of life, and where he belongs.
