M. Salahuddin Khan reads from SIKANDER
“At last, a Pakistani novelist attempting a novel of the scope and scale of Gone with the Wind. M. Salahuddin Khan’s SIKANDER is a sprawling, fast moving and gripping novel that takes the reader through several decades and through several continents. In the tale of SIKANDER, we experience the tribal conflicts in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the problems of adjustment of the community as a minority in America today. For those looking for a good read while also learning about the world we live in, I strongly recommend SIKANDER. -Ambassador Akbar Ahmed, Ibn-Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies, American University, Washington D.C.
“SIKANDER is an epic novel, reaching across the years of conflict in Afghanistan, from Soviet occupation to the post-9/11 years. Khan’s depictions of everyday Afghan life, and the costs of the continuous conflicts across the social classes provides an eye opening look at something often glossed over in search of easy depictions of good and evil.” -Ross Rojek, San Francisco Book Review
