To Be With Her

I am just taking a moment to share the news about this debut novel by Syed Afzal Haider, published by the Weavers Press. Here are the book details:


With the intellect and comic instinct of Rushdie, the obsessiveness of Percy, and the gritty realism of Bukowski, Syed Afzal Haider has created Ramzan Malik, seeker and romantic, moviegoer and Muslim, who breaks from his traditional Pakistani family to be with the American woman of his choice.” Elizabeth McKenzie, author of MacGregor Tells the World.
