Review:

a"The Wish Maker," in Ali Sethias mature and sure-handed prose, is an engaging family saga, an absorbing coming-of-age story, and an illuminating look at one of the worldas most turbulent regions. Ali Sethi steadfastly resists the usual clichA(c)s about both Islam and his native country. Instead, he offers a nuanced, often humorous, and always novel look at life in modern day Pakistan.a a Khaled Hosseini, author of "The Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns"
