Summary

The Submission : A Novel


A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year An Entertainment Weekly Best Novel of the Year An NPR Top Ten Novel of the Year A Washington Post Notable Book of the Year Esquire Book of the Year A jury chooses a memorial for the victims of a devastating terrorist attack on Manhattan, only to learn that the anonymous designer is an American Muslim -- an enigmatic architect named Mohammad Khan. His selection reverberates across a divided, traumatized country and, more intimately, through individual lives. Claire Burwell, the sole widow on the jury, becomes Khan's fiercest defender. But when the news of his selection becomes public, she comes under pressure from outraged family members and into collision with hungry journalists, opportunistic politicians, and even Khan himself. A story of clashing convictions and emotions, and a cunning satire of political ideals, Amy Waldman's The Submission is a resonant novel for our times.
