three books worth checking out

Three fiction books by three different Arab/Muslim Americans are reviewed in the Washington Post. The books in question are: Crescent by Diana Abu-Jaber, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, and West of the Jordan by Laila Halaby. And, as is often the case with “ethnic” fiction, the review is not by a literary critic, but by a scholar in the field, in this case the Post’s Kabul correspondent.
