One hour before I am due to speak to Reza Aslan, the world is held spellbound by Cairo. Egyptian Vice-President Omar Suleiman appears on state television and, during an address that lasts 32 seconds, he announces President Mubarak's decision to resign; the pictures are streamed live to thousands gathered in protest in Tahrir Square, and, online, to millions watching around the world. In an instant everything has changed, and everyone knows it. Eight weeks of Arab tumult have reached what is, for now, their climax; later, it will become clear that this sense of change, animated so unexpectedly in Tunisia in late December, will spread. Today, though, we have Egypt, and when Aslan and I finally sit down our conversation is shadowed throughout by the feeling of speaking on a momentous day. It's a stroke of luck to command Aslan's attention on such a day. The year-old Iranian-American is a rising star in the US, where he arrived with his family in , in the aftermath of the Iranian revolution.

Search Box x. Teacher's Guide. According to Aslan, this innate desire to humanize God is hardwired in our brains, making it a central feature of nearly every religious tradition. We bestow upon God not just all that is good in human nature—our compassion, our thirst for justice—but all that is bad in it: our greed, our bigotry, our penchant for violence. All these qualities inform our religions, cultures, and governments.

Reza Aslan's new book explores the titans of Middle East literature
The countries that stretch along the broad horizons of the Middle East—from Morocco to Iran, from Turkey to Pakistan—boast different cultures, different languages, and different religions. Yet the literary landscape of this dynamic part of the worldMoreThe countries that stretch along the broad horizons of the Middle East—from Morocco to Iran, from Turkey to Pakistan—boast different cultures, different languages, and different religions. Yet the literary landscape of this dynamic part of the world has been bound together not by borders and nationalities, but by a common experience of Western imperialism. Keenly aware of the collected scars left by a legacy of colonial rule, the acclaimed writer Reza Aslan, with a team of four regional editors and seventy-seven translators, cogently demonstrates with Tablet and Pen how literature can, in fact, be used to form identity and serve as an extraordinary chronicle of the disrupted histories of the region. This monumental collection, therefore, of nearly two hundred pieces, including short stories, novels, memoirs, essays and works of drama—many of them presented in English for the first time—features translated works from Arabic, Persian, Urdu, and Turkish.
Reza Aslan's latest book, Tablet and Pen: Literary Landscapes from the Modern Middle East, is what Edward Said might call a project of empathy, an attempt to illuminate and share a maligned culture through art. Aslan's anthology also becomes a project of self-understanding, a discussion among Middle Eastern writers about their worlds and their art. Aslan's first book was No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam, which became an international best seller; he is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, an associate professor of creative writing at U. Riverside, and a contributing editor at the Daily Beast.

В тот момент, когда он поравнялся с сиденьем, на котором сидела девушка, и подумал, что именно ей скажет, автобус проехал под уличным фонарем, на мгновение осветившим лицо обладателя трехцветной шевелюры.
