How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position

Tabish Khair

Recently divorced and teaching at Aarhus University, the unnamed narrator, a lapsed Muslim, is much more interested in his Hindoo friend Ravi's ability to improve their social lives, than he is in the comings and goings of their deeply religious Muslim landlord. When he begins to take notice, be prepared for some fundamental surprises in this witty, perceptive, really quite amazing novel.

Extract

'We are in old boy; they actually smile at Indian passports .... our chances to lay la lasses increased triple-fold after 9/11. Provided we do not tie a turban around our heads, as some silly Sikhs still do, and get them all confused because they have seen cartoons depicting your Mohammad in a turban.
