Description: Nasr is a man torn between two worlds: In New York he is a promising young professional with a vibrant social life; in Montreal he is the only son of a widowed Indian immigrant, still duty-bound to the tenets of Islam. Just as he begins to prepare for the arranged marriage he hopes will appease his family and ensure him a union as happy as his parents', he starts to suspect that his true love has been within reach his entire life. Nasr has known Jameela since they were children, and for nearly that long she has flouted the traditions her community holds dear. Now the rebellion that always made her seem dangerous suddenly makes him wonder if she might be his perfect match. Feeling increasingly trapped as his wedding date approaches, Nasr contemplates a drastic escape, but in the wake of 9/11—a tragedy that leaves the entire world reeling and reinforcing old prejudices—his promise of happiness will come at an impossible price. Current in its political themes and classic in its treatment of doomed love,The Groom to Have Beenis a graceful and emotionally charged debut.
