About Tamim Ansary
Tamim Ansary was born and raised in Afghanistan and has lived in the United States since 1964. His bestselling memoir West of Kabul, East of New York, was a One City One Book pick for San Francisco and for Waco, Texas. He also the author of Destiny Disrupted, a History of the World Through Islamic Eyes, which won the Northern California Book Award for best nonfiction book of 2009; and The Widow’s Husband, a historical novel set in Afghanistan in 1840. His new book Games Without Rules, The Often Interrupted History of Afghanistan, tells the story of this oft-invaded country from the inside looking out.
