Akhtar, Ayad: Homeland Elegies

A Barack Obama Favourite Book

A NEW YORK TIMES AND WASHINGTON POST BOOK OF THE YEAR
'Outstanding... it is hard to convey the breadth and brilliance of this work' Observer
'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.
