Husband of a Fanatic: A Personal Journey Through India, Pakistan, Love, and Hate. In the summer of 1999, Amitava Kumar - a Hindu writer living and teaching in the United States - married a Pakistani Muslim woman. In this book, Kumar chronicles the entanglements that his new marriage provoked, from ambivalent encounters with family to his disquieting lunch with the amiable bigot who had posted Kumar's name on his website blacklist of Hindu traitors. With a poet's eye for detail, Kumar draws a map of violence, moving from the wars and nuclear rivalry dividing two nation-states to the more blurred relationship between two religions and their adherents. With bibliography.
