"Born to an Afghan father and American mother, Tamim Ansary grew up in the intimate world of Afghan family life and emigrated to San Francisco thinking he'd left Afghan culture behind forever. At the height of the Iranian Revolution, however, he took a harrowing journey through the Islamic world, and in the years that followed, he struggled to unite his divided self and to find a place in his imagination where his Afghan and American identities might meet. The day after the World Trade Center was destroyed, he sent an anguished e-mail to twenty friends, discussing the attack from his perspective as an Afghan American. The message was the culmination of his lifelong struggle, and it reached millions. West of Kabul, East of New York is his story"--Cover page 4.
