John Updike should not have written this book.

John Updike should not have written this book.

Not only does John Updike write tales of suburban angst; he also has a long history of ruminating on faith. I usually read the writings of the late John Updike because of the beautiful writing and the insights I get about human thought and experience. His plots are not usually very compelling. Critics compare his latest novel to In the Beauty of the Lilies and The Coup except that Terrorist has an intensely contemporary flare. It's almost scandalous to see one of America's literary lions toying with such an inflammatory topic—and in the guise of a thriller, no less.

John Updike was born in Shillington, Pennsylvania, in 1932. He graduated from Harvard College in 1954 and spent a year in Oxford, England, at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. From 1955 to 1957 he was a member of the staff of The New Yorker.

And the Spanish and Dutch. The Prophet urges it in the Book. Ahmad quotes: Mohammed is Allah’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. Still, the jihad seems very distant. now. It was ironical: Louis Seize spent so much supporting us he taxed the French to the point where they revolted and cut off his head. Delivering modern furniture and collecting furniture that had been modern to its dead owners, he and Charlie ride Excellency through a sweltering morass of pizzerias and nail salons, thrift outlets and gas stations, White Castles and Blimpies.

Chapter V. Don’t miss John Updike’s. Praise for Terrorist. This wounds her, and she turns away, her thick books to take home pushing up at her breasts, making the crease between them deep. And now, O Lord, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live. Fuck you, Ahmad, she says, still with some gentleness, tentatively, her lower lip of its soft weight hanging loose a little. The saliva at the base of her gums sparks with reflected light from the overhead fluorescent tubes that keep the hall safely bright.

Updike allows us to interpret that hunger in the psychosexual terms familiar to the west

Updike allows us to interpret that hunger in the psychosexual terms familiar to the west. Ahmad is, on one reading of the evidence, a confused adolescent struggling to control his natural urges through submission to a strict and ultimately distorting discipline. His thoughtful, disturbing narrative insists repeatedly on the moral and spiritual dimensions of jihad, tacitly urging us towards a deeper understanding of Islamic fundamentalism and revealing, in the process, patterns of connection vastly more subtle and complex than anything recognised by America's political masters.

Terrorist is the 22nd novel written by John Updike. The story centers on an American-born Muslim teenager named Ahmad Ashmawy Mulloy, although Ahmad’s high school life guidance counselor, Jack Levy, also plays a central role.

Ahmad ha nacido en New Prospect, una ciudad industrial venida a menos del area de Nueva York. Es hijo de una norteamericana de origen irlandes y de un estudiante egipcio que desaparecio de sus vidas cuando tenia tres anos. A los once, con el beneplacito de su madre, se convirtio al Islam y, siguiendo las ensenanzas de su rigorista imam, el Sheij Rashid, lo fue asumiendo como identidad y escudo frente a la sociedad decadente, materialista y hedonista que le rodeaba. Ahora, a los dieciocho, acuciado por los agobios y angustias sexuales y morales propios de un adolescente despierto, Ahmad se debate entre su conciencia religiosa, los consejos de Jack Levy el desencantado asesor escolar que ha sabido reconocer sus cualidades humanas e inteligencia, y las insinuaciones cada vez mas explicitas de implicacion en actos terroristas de Rashid. Hasta que se encuentra al volante de una furgoneta cargada de explosivos camino de volar por los aires uno de los tuneles de acceso a la Gran Manzana. / In this passionate thriller, Updike approaches the delicate subject of post-September 11th society in the United States. He manages to get under the skin of the other, Ahmad, the son of an Irish-American woman and an Egyptian man who ran off when his son was only three who has converted into Islam and seems destined to become a martyr.

Ahmad Ashmawy Mulloy es un adolescente mestizo hijo de un padre egipcio ausente y una madre irlandesa disoluta que crece en una pequeña ciudad del estado de New Jersey. Desde niño a sido criado por una madre soltera tolerante que le ha permitido que se convierta al islam sin ponerle ninguna pega. Durante años, Ahmad ha sido un fiel discípulo de su maestro, ha estudiado el Corán a conciencia, habla árabe y sigue todos los preceptos de la religión. Ha medida que va creciendo va sintiendo más y más rechazo por la cultura y el modo de vida norteamericano que le parece decadente, consumista, inmoral, ruin e impuro, rechaza todo lo conocido para abrazar un abstracto desconocido. El chico ya es adulto, pero aquellos a los que creía sus mentores y hermanos de la fe solo lo han utilizado para adoctrinarlo, lo han enseñado a odiar y despreciar hasta a su propia madre, lo han ido formando durante años para el martirologio sin el saberlo. En una furgoneta cargada de explosivos ha de decidir si se reunirá con su creador o dar marcha atrás en su propósito.
Novela de ficción muy bien escrita y actual ambientado en el años posterior al atentado a las Torres Gemelas (11 de septiembre de 2001), con atisbos de ensayo social que provoca con su narrativa y diálogos llanos y precisos penetrar en la psicología social colectiva americana desde diferentes ángulos yendo a la raíz de los problemas a través de una crítica ácida a los valores y estilo de vida americana, a la mediocre educación pública, al consumismo compulsivo y al vacío espiritual de la inmensa mayoría de la población norteamericana. Trama que seduce al lector al exponer con claridad ejemplos de los miedos, sueños, mentiras, manipulaciones, rechazos, virtudes y el adoctrinamiento de adolescentes y jóvenes manipulados por una religión mal interpretada al servicio del mal.
