AOT #172: Ali Sethi Podcasts The Wish Maker
Ali Sethi reads from and discusses his debut novel The Wish Maker, a sweeping story of love, friendship, and family ties that brings to life the turbulent world of modern Pakistan.
“The Wish Maker, in Ali Sethi’s mature and sure-handed prose, is an engaging family saga, an absorbing coming-of-age story, and an illuminating look at one of the world’s most turbulent regions. Ali Sethi steadfastly resists the usual clichés about both Islam and his native country. Instead, he offers a nuanced, often humorous, and always novel look at life in modern day Pakistan.”–Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns
