read × eBook or Kindle ePUB Æ Mohamed Asem Mohamed Asem Æ 3 free download Stranger in the Pen review à 3 Ome in the Middle East only to cast it all aside after his mother's early death Stranger in the Pen examines the burden of being disconnected from one's homeland unpacks the emotional toll of racial profiling and illuminates the uietly surprising ways in which grief can change one's life. Having heard that this book was coming out and having the opportunity to meet the author I was excited when it was recently released In Stranger In The Pen Mohamed Asem tells a story known to many international travelers of suspicion prejudice and profiling This is nothing new in Occidental countries but has become far worse over the past several decades The fact that this could take place in England to a legal resident and homeowner who also carried a US passport and in the end for no good reason seems hard to imagine The only good to come out of this experience is this terrific book This is far from being only a story of 24 hours of terror and adversity Mohamed moves seamlessly from the present to stories of his past his family and his friends His ability to describe through these flashbacks provide a greater clarity to the story of his detention I found this story enjoyable rewarding in a literary sense and I enthusiastically recommend it to anyone who loves good writing I hope this success will lead to other works of this uality Sam Pierce
