The Man Booker-shortlisted, thrillingly provocative international bestseller - adapted to a major motion picture starring Kiefer Sutherland - from the author of Exit West 'Excuse me, sir, but may I be of assistance? Ah, I see I have alarmed you. Do not be frightened by my beard. I am a lover of America . . . ' So speaks the mysterious stranger at a Lahore cafe as dusk settles. Invited to join him for tea, you learn his name and what led this speaker of immaculate English to seek you out. For he is more worldy than you might expect; better travelled and better educated. He knows the West better than you do. And as he tells you his story, of how he embraced the Western dream -- and a Western woman -- and how both betrayed him, so the night darkens. Then the true reason for your meeting becomes abundantly clear . . . Challenging, mysterious and thrillingly tense, Mohsin Hamid's masterly The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a vital read teeming with questions and ideas about some of the most pressing issues of today's globalised, fractured world.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is more than the usual immigrant book of adaptation, struggle, and identity. It is the gripping tale of a young man who comes to America from Pakistan just prior to 9/11. The protagonist, Changez, is a Harvard educated businessman who works for a high-profile company that assesses the economic value of other companies. Changez is very successful in his chosen career, but then September 11 happens and everything changes. The setting is Lahore, Pakistan and the tale is told by one narrator, that of Changez, as he speaks to a nameless and faceless American tourist. The narration takes place in the span of a single evening, in fact, during a single meal, and Hamid manages to swing the reader on a pendulum of conflicting emotions and thoughts. The Bookclub-in-a-Box guide explores a number of important questions: who is this nameless American and why is he in Pakistan; how can one person have equal love for two countries that are at odds with each other in culture and outlook; how does such a person come to terms with his two worlds; and what is the significance of the word “reluctant” in the novel’s title, The Reluctant Fundamentalist. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide also includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen (Institut fur Englische Philologie), Veranstaltung: Reactions to Terrorism - Criticism and Literature after 9/11, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Ihre Arbeit uberzeugt nicht nur durch die interessante und prazise Fragestellung, sondern auch durch einen klaren Aufbau. Die Argumentation ist stets zielgerichtet und insgesamt von hoher Uberzeugungskraft. Positiv hervorzuheben ist daruber hinaus, dass Sie zu wirklich spannenden Beobachtungen und Ergebnissen gelangen. Ich habe ihre ausserst eigenstandige Arbeit, die schon recht souveran eine Vielzahl relevanter literatur- und kulturwissenschaftlicher Kontexte heranzieht, uber weite Strecken weniger als Korrektorin, sondern mit echtem Interesse gelesen., Abstract: Die katastrophalen Anschlage vom 11. September 2001 haben Menschen auf der ganzen Welt schockiert. Noch bevor sich die Staubwolke gelegt hatte und das Aus-mass des bislang heftigsten terroristischen Angriffs sichtbar wurde, war jedem ein-zelnen, ob New Yorker oder nicht, bewusst, dass dieses Ereignis weitreichende Folgen haben wurde. Kurz nach den Terroranschlagen konnte bereits beobachtet werden, wie sich diese schreckliche Tat, gerade im Zeitalter der Globalisierung, auf viele Bereiche des gesellschaftlichen Zusammenlebens auswirkt. Bis heute, nur wenige Jahre nach den Anschlagen, sind zahlreiche Bucher, Dokumentationen und auch Kinofilme erschienen, die diese weltweite historische Zasur thematisieren. Der Verarbeitungsprozess ist langst nicht abgeschlossen und somit lassen sich vor allem in den jungsten Werken der Weltliteratur interessante Beobachtungen zur amerikanischen Post-9/11-Gesellschaft machen. Mohsin Hamids Novelle The Reluctant Fundamentalist zeigt auf besonders interessante Art und Weise wie sich die Anschlage vom 11. September auf die amerikanische Gesellschaft auswirken. Bemerkenswert ist nicht nur, dass The Reluctant Fundamen

Essay from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 9/10, , course: Faculty of Letters, language: English, abstract: This essay analyses North America’s foreign relations with the Middle East before and after the 9/11 attacks in Moshin Hamid’s "The Reluctant Fundamentalist". This is inherently depicted in personal and professional relations. Namely, the plotline focuses on the life of Changez, a Pakistani immigrant that portrays an ‘Islamic elite’ dwelling in the US. Following the 9/11 attacks, a growing wave of Islamophobia will emerge, tearing apart Changez’s accommodated American lifestyle. Much of this detriment is conveyed by means of Changez’s relationship with other characters, especially with Erica (Changez’s love interest), a troubled young woman. Erica’s character is a symbol for the American nation.

From Solidarity to Schisms is the first collection to expand discussions of the effects the events of 11 September 2001 and their aftermath have had on fiction and film beyond an exclusively US-based focus. The essays brought together here go beyond critiquing the US to examine the cultural shifts taking place in fiction and cinema from places such as Britain, France, Germany, Australia, Pakistan, Canada, Israel, and Iran. From these many sites of production, the works discussed in this collection illustrate more precisely how 9/11 was “global” without succumbing to neat categorizations, such as “us vs. them,” “East vs. West,” “Christianity vs. Islam,” and so on.From Solidarity to Schisms is an important supplement to the US-centered cultural and critical production addressing 9/11, providing researchers and teachers alike with resources and contexts that will allow them to broaden their own examinations of novels and films by Americans and about the US. It also provides a valuable resource for students and scholars of contemporary global history and international politics who are interested in approaching 9/11, terrorism and counter-terrorism, and related topics from a cultural standpoint.
