“[A] sweeping and brilliant tale…Rahman’s rich and complex debut novel is like [a] great meal…In the Light of What We Know may be the best meal you eat this year. [Rahman’s] insights—whether related to Pakistan-India enmity, Ivy-League attitude or non-governmental organizations’ idealism—were right on target, [his] characters’ experiences plausible and compelling, and [his] grasp of the widely varied subjects in the novel was breathtaking.”
