I’M NOT MUHAMMAD chronicles the paranoia that many Americans felt during the dark and momentous days following 9/11. In that atmosphere of high alert, Yusuf Alsawari, a graduate student married to an American woman, is swept up by mysterious government agents. His civil rights suspended and unable to contact his family, he quickly finds himself living a nightmare. In Trask’s telling, Alsawari’s story is by turns harrowing, horrific, comic, and always moving. I’m Not Muhammad is a powerful first novel that is, on the one hand, a deeply felt personal narrative about the tragic consequences for the victims of extraordinary rendition; on the other, a disturbing cautionary tale about America in the 21st Century.
