The Reluctant Fundamentalist By Mohsin Hamid

Harcourt / 208 pages / $13

This finalist for the Man Booker Prize, Britain's most prestigious literary award, tells the story of Changez, a middle-class Pakistani living in New York. He has graduated from the top of his class at Princeton University, been hired by a prestigious valuation firm and is romancing the beautiful Erica. But then come the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, throwing his life into disarray and causing him to realize there are allegiances stronger than money, power and, perhaps, even love.
