CAN THE GLASS EVER REALLY BE MORE THAN HALF-FULL?

A young Pakistani academic relives his days sharing a cramped apartment in Aarhus, Denmark, with two unlikely bedfellows. They are Ravi, his incorrigible best friend and a wry observer of the human condition; and Karim, their fundamentalist Muslim landlord, whose apparent double life soon intrigues his tenants.

While Ravi finds his jaded world outlook challenged when he falls for an unlikely Danish girl, and our narrator embarks upon a complicated love affair of his own, Karim's bizarre and secretive behaviour leads to creeping suspicions that something might, indeed, be rotten in the state of Denmark . . .

By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position is a sparkling account of strangers in strange lands, told with wit and humanity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Smart, funny and wonderfully irreverent.

-- Mohsin Hamid
Irreverent, intelligent, explosive...I suspect this will be among my most memorable reads of 2014. * The Independent *
Khair writes brilliantly about racism, and the misunderstanding between rich and poor. Unmissable. * The Times *
This is a fast-paced, hilarious novel that nonetheless has sufficient depth to withstand several re-readings. If there's any justice, it's going to be as big a hit in Euro-America as it has been in Khair's home country of India. * The Huffington Post *
Quirkily humorous, this novel challenges assumptions about Muslims. * Guardian *
