The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas
W. W. Norton & Company
Raisuddin Bhuiyan, a former Bangladeshi air force pilot, was working at a Dallas convenience store when he was shot point-blank by self-described terrorist Mark Stroman. The True American tells the wrenching story of Bhuiyan's path to healing, assimilation and finally his campaign to stay Stroman's execution. A chilling nonfiction account from a New York Times columnist who dares to ask whether Americans can still claim the American dream.
