"Passionate, disturbing, unputdownable." —Salman Rushdie

A deeply personal work about identity and belonging in a nation coming apart at the seams, Homeland Elegies blends fact and fiction to tell an epic story of longing and dispossession in the world that 9/11 made. Part family drama, part social essay, part picaresque novel, at its heart it is the story of a father, a son, and the country they both call home.

Ayad Akhtar forges a new narrative voice to capture a country in which debt has ruined countless lives and the gods of finance rule, where immigrants live in fear, and where the nation's unhealed wounds wreak havoc around the world. Akhtar attempts to make sense of it all through the lens of a story about one family, from a heartland town in America to palatial suites in Central Europe to guerrilla lookouts in the mountains of Afghanistan, and spares no one—least of all himself—in the process.

Very entertaining narration of what I feel is an honest and entertaining look into the personal life of Ayad Akhtar. The book description says part memoir, part fiction, regardless, it’s a look at a group of people in America that may seem commonplace, but Akhtar presents it in a way that hooks a reader (depends on the person, I can see how some people would dismiss it). The pace of the book is great, part of it might be that it’s not one continuous story, but more like short stories that overlap.

A bitter pill. Bitter people preaching self righteous garbage.
