"American Dervish" by Ayad Akhtar

Yesterday, I was listening to NPR and heard about a new and fascinating book written by an 20120119-215701.jpgMuslim-American author and his experiences growing up in Minnesota. The book is entitled "American Dervish" and profiles a young, Pakistani born boy who lives as the extreme minority in suburban Minnesota prior to 9/11.

Adding it to my "list of books to read in 2012". Have you heard of any other new books that I should add?
