El Fundamentalista Reticente = The Reluctant Fundamentalist (Paperback)
The Reluctant Fundamentalist, is about Changez, a young Pakistani. Told in a single monologue, the narrative never flags. Changez is by turns naive, sinister, unctuous, mildly threatening, overbearing, insulting, angry, resentful, and sad. He tells his story to a nameless, mysterious American who sits across from him at a Lahore cafe.
