Picking up where "Infidel" leaves off, "Nomad" tells the stirring story of Ali''s search for a new life in America. A brave, inspiring, and beautifully written memoir.--"The New York Times."
From the Publisher:
The activist and best-selling author of Infidel describes her experiences after moving to America to pursue a safer life, from her renewed contact with her family after her father's death to her struggles to embrace new principles in the face of Islamic attempts to prohibit her work.Hirsi Ali tells the stirring story of her search for a new life in America in this vivid philosophical memoir, picking up where INFIDEL left off.
Annotation:
In her international bestseller INFIDEL, Ayaan Hirsi Ali detailed how she escaped her appallingly strict upbringing as the daughter of a radical Muslim by fleeing to the Netherlands, where she became an outspoken critic of the Islam faith. As she reports in this equally powerful follow-up, Ali's courage and candor earned her a death warrant from European Islamists, forcing her to once again abandon the life she knew, this time to seek asylum in the United States. Ali was initially inspired by the freedom and tolerance she witnessed in America, which caused her to analyze how severely her wisdom and ambitions had been limited by oppressive Islamic tenets, but she cautions that the ubiquitous liberties of the United States have led many to abide and overlook the looming global danger imposed by fundamentalist Islam.

Praise

"...Hirsi Ali is a remarkable figure who has plenty of memories to record....Her memoir suggests that she never quite outgrew her rebellious teenager phase, but also that she would be a terrific conversationalist at a dinner party." - Nicholas D. Kristof 05/30/2010
