West of Kabul, East of New York: An Afghan American Story, by Mir Tamim Ansary

This book grew out of an email composed by the author that was widely forwarded after Sept. 11th. Ansary is an Afghan-American who paints a picture of life in Afghanistan in the 1950’s and 1960’s and what it has meant to him to have a foot in two worlds, American and Afghani. I found his meditation on his late father especially moving. The author himself reads the book on cd version.

RATING: * * * * Very, very good
