What does it mean to be a young Muslim in the twenty-first century?
When Aatish Taseer receives a challenging letter from his estranged father in Pakistan, he decides to set off on an expedition across the Islamic world in search of his own Islamic heritage, as well as to discover how other young people across the Middle East felt about theirs.
As he travels, Aatish tells the story of his own family over the past fifty years. It is an absorbing and thought-provoking journey which culminates in an emotional reunion between Aatish and his father in Lahore. It brings home the stark reality of attempts to reconcile old belief systems and liberal reform in a divided region where East meets West.
