Kirkus Reviews "Fall's Most Anticipated Debuts"
"The Faithful Scribe is an impassioned and insightful look into the heart of a troubled but vital country." —Vali Nasr, author of The Dispensable Nation: American Foreign Policy in Retreat
“If you want to understand Pakistan and the Pakistani-American relationship, read this book.” —Ryan Crocker, former American Ambassador to Pakistan
"An undeniable visionary, Mufti insightfully glances back at Pakistan’s past and nods hopefully toward its precarious future." —Kirkus
"Mufti deserves credit for framing Pakistan's story in terms of ideas, not merely events. He intuitively grasps that, though Pakistan is no theocracy, it shares some of the Saudi and Iranian sense of a larger Islamic mission." —Wall Street Journal
"This astonishingly detailed, well-researched history is brought to life
by the addition of Mufti’s personal story’ and journalistic acumen." —Publishers Weekly
