Chicago: A Novel by Alaa Al Aswany
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
An interesting and unexpected perspective on life in Chicago. The particularly confronting race relations issue is actually black-white as opposed to Arab-American. Style took some getting used to. The device (build up to climax/cut to next scene) got a bit tiring after only a few chapters and made it sometimes difficult to keep track of the multiple characters and plot lines.
