Book Overview
Sparkling and combustible ( Bloomberg Businessweek ), DISGRACED rubs all kinds of unexpected raw spots with intelligence and humor ( Newsday ). In dialogue that bristles with wit and intelligence, Akhtar puts contemporary attitudes toward religion under a microscope, revealing how tenuous self-image can be for people born into one way of being who have embraced another.... Everyone has been told that politics and religion are two subjects that should be off-limits at social gatherings. But watching these characters rip into these forbidden topics, there's no arguing that they make for ear-tickling good theater ( New York Times ). Add a liberal flow of alcohol and a couple of major secrets suddenly revealed, and you've got yourself one dangerous dinner party (Associated Press).
