Ayad Akhtar - American Dervish

Colfax Avenue: Actor, playwright and novelist Ayad Akhtar will read from and sign the new paperback edition of his critically acclaimed novel American Dervish (Little, Brown). American Dervish is a brilliantly written, nuanced, and emotionally forceful look inside the interplay of religion and modern life. Ayad Akhtar was raised in the Midwest, and through his characters he shows readers vividly the powerful forces at work on young men and women growing up Muslim in America. This is an intimate, personal first novel that will stay with readers long after they turn the last page.
