READING: Now a major motion picture “One of those achingly assured novels that makes you happy to be a reader.” —Junot Diaz At a café table in Lahore, a bearded Pakistani man converses with an uneasy American stranger. As dusk deepens to night, he begins the tale that has brought them to this fateful encounter . . . Changez is living an immigrant’s dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by an elite valuation firm. He thrives on the energy of New York, and his budding romance with elegant, beautiful Erica promises entry into Manhattan society at the same exalted level once occupied by his own family back in Lahore. But in the wake of September 11, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned, and his relationship with Erica shifting. And Changez’s own identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and maybe even love. “Brief, charming, and quietly furious . . . a resounding success.” —Village Voice A Washington Post and San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year A New York Times Notable Book

READING: 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.

READING: 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.

READING: Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject American Studies - Literature, , language: English, abstract: The focus of this paper is the plight the Muslims of the world, especially those living in America, face due to religious discriminations. This discrimination is the result of the religious profiling of the media and the institutions which are working to spread the ideology of the West to the rest of the world. Everything is under their control so they manipulate the facts. Many Asian writers have tried to portray the true picture of the scene but it remains a great crisis need to be resolved. This paper will examine the core issues resulting from the religious profiling with the references from the novel "The Reluctant Fundamentalist", written by Mohsin Hamid in the context of post-9/11 milieu of the world, especially about the dealing with the Muslims.

READING: 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

READING: 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.

READING: This is a comprehensive study of the first decade of literary representations of 9/11, moving from Art Spiegelman's In the Shadow of No Towers (2003) to Amy Waldman's The Submission (2012). It traces the way literature has dealt with an event that continues to shape world conflict and resonate prominently in the American imagination, and argues that the corpus of literary fiction discussing 9/11 is characterized by a fundamental sense of conflictedness related to the tensions between trauma or mourning and political imperatives. The work offers in-depth analyses of texts that have historicized 9/11 and shaped the way we understand this key moment in American and world history.

The Publisher Palgrave Macmillan
Release Date2013
Genre Fiction
Pages 191
ISBN 9780230349681
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: While much of the critical discussion about the emerging genre of 9/11 fiction has centred on the trauma of 9/11 and on novels by EuroAmerican writers, this book draws attention to the diversity of what might be meant by "post" -9/11 by exploring the themes of uncanny terror through a close reading of "post" -9/11 South Asian diasporic fictions. The novels surveyed include Salman Rushdie's Shalimar the Clown, Hari Kunzru's Transmission, Monica Ali's Brick Lane and Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundementalist. Pei-chen Liao examines how these writers represent the return of the repressed and the post-9/11 unhomely migrant experience. She argues that 9/11 is not only an American national trauma or a terrorist attack on the West, but that its aftermath also manifests the transnational and transcultural emotional transmission of terror and fear. She also discusses the diversity of the post-9/11 condition in terms of the ways that the writers think beyond 9/11 and treat the terrorist moment on 11 September as an exemplary incident that allows different temporalities and a range of personal, political, cultural, racial and gender issues to appear.
