What drives a young woman raised in a postwar New York City suburb to convert to Islam, abandon her country and Jewish faith, and embrace a life of exile in Pakistan? "The Convert" tells the story of how Margaret Marcus of Larchmont became Maryam Jameelah of Lahore.
Deborah Baker builds on the profile of a complicated individual to probe a series of paradoxes underlining global conflict between East and West. Beginning with the chance discovery of Islamist scholar Maryam Jameelah's correspondence with her American Jewish parents, who named her Margaret Marcus, Baker details the life story of a rebellious girl who transplanted herself to Pakistan and became a leading anti-secular-materialist critic. As troubling gaps between Jameelah's public and private experiences emerge from Baker's reporting, the author translates these difficulties into questions about historical and present-day ideological warfare.
