Seeing Sufi in America

Newsweek/Washington Post’s “On Faith” section recently published my article about American Sufis.

For all of us melancholics and obsessives and loners and miscreants, with our spiritual gastroenteritis and Nietzschean dyspepsia, the existence of the Sufis is thoroughly soothing, even if we never join their orders or learn their prayers.

Some of these are stories/characters that did not make the final cut of my prose work Children of Dust.

    About Me

    I am the author of the prose work Children of Dust published in 2009 by HarperOne. It was called "compelling" by Washington Post and "a heavenly read" by Oprah's O Magazine which placed it on its Fall Reading List. It was also picked as one of New Statesman 2009 Books of the Year ("a funny and frightening narrative of life").
