Publishers Weekly has given a Starred Review to Amitava Kumar's forthcoming book A Foreigner Carrying in the Crook of His Arm a Tiny Bomb. The reviewer writes that "Kumar’s searching and humane account of the global consequences of the U.S. 'war on terror' gets behind the rhetoric and state public relations campaigns in a brisk but thoughtful narrative." The reviewer concludes: "An arresting and heartrending work of public protest and valuable social analysis, this work contributes forcefully to a subtle, human-scaled accounting of 21st-century geopolitics." The book will be available in August, along with Kumar's first novel, Nobody Does the Right Thing. Check out Kumar's website or follow him on Twitter.
