Aram Schefrin’s Marwan

marwan2.jpgAn Egyptian city planner, a timid Saudi pilot, a boy from the United Arab Emirates who worshipped sex, not Allah, and a young Lebanese student who had gone to a Christian school: How did these very different men with very different ideas come to fly the 9/11 planes? How did the plot develop, and who developed it?

“Marwan,” a novel by Aram Schefrin, is a taut, well-paced exploration of a key episode in contemporary history. It is suspenseful, illuminating, and brilliantly balanced between the compelling narration of known facts – from the group’s first coming together in Hamburg, Germany, to the moments before the jets they were to hijack took off – and an imaginative response to unanswered questions.

  1. I am almost done reading this book and I have to say this is one of the best books I have read in a long time and we’re very fortunate to have the pleasure of representing Aram. I wish whoever reads this understands what Aram’s book is all about. It’s written from the terrorists’ point of view, yes, but it shows us what NOT to do to avoid another 911. Very, very, very good book. Good luck on the rest of your tour, Aram!

  2. This sounds like a great book. I can’t wait to read it.


  3. I’m very happy to have a copy.
