Zeitoun by Dave Eggers

A spare telling of a post-2001 tale shedding light on the difficulties non-whites (particularly Muslims) can face in our all-too-fearful world. Tender at times, shocking at other times, all in all an engrossing read. Leads the reader think harder about both the blatant prejudices that exist in our culture. Can even lead the reader to consider what hidden or unacknowledged prejudices might be lurking inside him/herself.
