In addition, Stranger to History is a prophetic book. As Taseer recalls his eight-month journey in Pakistan, Turkey, Syria, and Iran, he witnesses intimations of turmoil to come: the anger leading up to the Arab Spring, the faces of the now suppressed Green Revolution following the disputed election of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the atrocities of the Assad regime/5(19).

Aatish Taseer's Stranger to History is a genre-bending novel, part travelogue and part quest for identity. The novel begins with the author's determination to bridge the gap and reconcile differences between him and his distant, absentee father through the only thing that he left him/5. Aatish Taseer, no schlub, Prufrockian or otherwise, in his memoir, Stranger to History: A Son’s Journey Through Islamic Lands, nevertheless has written a contemporary substantiation to Allen's claim.

Taseer personifies the psychological world he grew up in, Punjabi, India, haunted by its pre-Partition past/5(35). Aatish Taseer is the author of Stranger to History and two novels, The Temple Goers and Noon, and a translation.

He has worked as a reporter for Time magazine, and has written for the Sunday Times, the Financial Times, and Esquire. Stranger to History is the story of the journey he made to try to understand what it means to be Muslim in the twenty-firstcentury. Starting from Istanbul, Islam's once greatest city, he travels to Mecca, its most holy, and then home through Iran and Pakistan.
