Home Boy

by H. M. Naqvi
£8.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2011)

Home Boy by H. M. Naqvi Meet the Metrostanis, three young Pakistani men in New York City at the turn-of-the- millennium: AC, a gangsta rap spouting academic; Jimbo, a hulking Pushtun deejay from the streets of Jersey City; and Chuck, a wide-eyed, off-the-boat kid, searching for himself and the American Dream.
 
In a city where origins matter less than the talent for self invention, they have the guts to claim the place as their own. But after the fall of the towers they embark on a road-trip to the hinterland in search of 'The Shaman', a Gatsbyesque compatriot who seemingly disappears into thin air - and then things begin to go horribly wrong. Suddenly, they find themselves in a changed, charged America...
 
Home Boy is a hip, bittersweet page-turner about love, loss and identity and an electrifying debut for H. M. Naqvi.
