Summary "Aging and homesick, Nur Ali is living in America, seeking asylum. Though exiled from his Swat, Pakistan, homeland and inaccurately labeled as a Taliban sympathizer by the US government, he's determined to keep his position as family patriarch. So Nur Ali leads and provides for his beloved family clan in Pakistan from half a world away. Using prepaid phone cards and a landline in the inner-city 7-Eleven where he works as night shift manager, Nur Ali manages food, gifts, marriages, births, and deaths, all the events that glue a family together"-- Provided by publisher.
