A NEW YORK TIMES; WASHINGTON POST AND ECONOMIST BOOK OF THE YEAR 'I read it in a fever; swept up in the kind of rapture you fall into when your most audacious friend kicks off on a hilarious; outrageous; but deeply sincere rant' Torrey Peters; Guardian Books of the Summer 'A beautiful novel about an American son and his immigrant father that has echoes of THE GREAT GATSBY' New York Times A deeply personal novel of identity and belonging in a nation coming apart at the seams; HOMELAND ELEGIES blends fact and fiction to tell an epic story of belonging and dispossession in the world that 9/11 made. Part family drama; part satire; part picaresque; at its heart it is the story of a father and son; and the country they call home. Ranging from the heartland towns of America to palatial suites in Europe to guerrilla lookouts in the mountains of Afghanistan; Akhtar forges a narrative voice that is original as it is exuberantly entertaining. This is a world in which debt has ruined countless lives and the gods of finance rule; where immigrants live in fear and the unhealed wounds of 9/11 continue to wreak havoc. HOMELAND ELEGIES is a novel written in love and anger; which spares no one; least of all the author himself.
