  John Updike  
 
 

Terrorist
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2006.

The startlingly contemporary story of a high school student in a crumbling New Jersey town whose zealous Islamic faith and disaffection with modern life make him a pawn in the larger conflict between Muslim and Christian, East and West. They also make him a powerful voice for Updike's ongoing critique of American civilization.

Lev Grossman, Time.
