Tamim Ansary presents his new memoir,
Road Trips: Becoming an American in the Vapor Trail of the Sixties
Afghan American author Tamim Ansary presents his latest work, Road Trips: Becoming an American in the Vapor Trail of the Sixties, which recounts stories from his years as part of the American ’60s and’70s counterculture, after he arrived from Afghanistan and “dropped out” of a society he’d never been a part of.
Ansary writes memoir, history, fiction, and essays on politics, current events, arts, sports, philosophy and whatever else captures his imagination. His book West of Kabul, East of New York, was selected by San Francisco as its One City One Book pick for 2009.
