Changez is living an immigrant’s dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by an elite firm. He thrives on the energy of New York and his budding romance with a woman who promises entry into Manhattan society at the same exalted level once occupied by his own family back in Lahore. But in the wake of September 11, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned, and his relationship with Erica shifting. Changez’s own identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power and maybe even love.
