terrorist versus the reluctant fundamentalist

updike takes on fundamentalism with his usual tropes. Mohsin hamid starts with his own background of pakistan and princeton and goes from there. Hamid is no updike. And updike was a young guy once seeking ultimate truths. So updike wins on prose and empathy. Hamids book once it leaves management consultancy seems flimsy . Updike doesnt quite get being not white.
