A Muslim Immigrant’s Memoir of Pursuing the American Dream and Serving Our Communities in Turbulent Times, we are excited to support Ghalib (Victor) Begg in the announcement of his newest book.
“Everything in this book really happened. No names have been changed. Ultimately, it is a true-blue American story in which I hope you may find your own family mirrored in some of the experiences I describe. We share so much as Americans.,” Begg said.
In America, Muslims are becoming our neighbors, co-workers, community leaders, caregivers and, in many cases, members of our families. Yet, 60% of Americans don’t know their next-door Muslim neighbor. Knowing one can be as easy as enjoying the dramatic—sometimes suspenseful and sometimes funny—memoir of Muslim peacemaker Begg.
His new memoir combines the compelling personal narrative in the novel The Namesake with the sharp advocacy on behalf of a minority community found in Hillbilly Elegy.
Begg’s daring as an American entrepreneur takes him from door-to-door sales to running a popular chain of furniture stores. Meanwhile, his entrepreneurial skills turn to build up the Muslim community both in Michigan and nationwide.
