About this title

Synopsis:

Amina prepares for college on what is expected to be an exciting first day of higher learning. When she steps onto the university campus for the first time, however, she bumps into Raja Gupta, a young, persuasive, and hot-headed university intellectual who lures her into joining a student group whose cause is the liberation of East Pakistan from West Pakistan. What follows is a stormy and passionate romance detailing the lives of both Raja Gupta and Amina Mitra as they both attempt to survive from one of the worst genocides of historical record-a genocide that ultimately leads to the birth of the poor and crippled nation known today as Bangladesh. This novel is written with historical accuracy and is Book One of a trilogy that charts the rise and fall of these two characters, as well as the son that is orphaned after Amina Mitra is forced to abandon him in the Great Mosque of Mecca. Praise for Harvey Havel's earlier work, The Imam Religion News Writer Phil Anderson of the Topeka-Capital Journal's Religion and Ethics Section: "Havel delivers an epic tale surrounding the fictionalized life of the 12th Imam." Los Angeles News of Whittier, CA. The Summer Reading Centerfold Section: ...Keep in mind that this publishing company's motto is "Uncut, unedited, quality literature." From columnist Imam Khalil Abdel Alim, Huntsville Times: "Harvey Havel has written an important book that could inspire progressive thinking among Muslims. He writes graphically, dramatically and poetically." From The Star-News of Pasadena, CA: "[The Imam] finds a way towards Allah that eschews reality but closely resembles it." From Kinships Magazine "Culture Shock; the only words I can find to describe The Imam. One could find other words for this work of art. Well written comes to mind, as does enthralling and informative. Education is the key to understanding, and this novel does just that." Harvey Havel is the author of eight books, including Charlie Zero's Last-Ditch Attempt, A Novel, and his current memoir, Mother. He currently lives in Albany, New York.
