Blue-Eyed Devil: A Road Odyssey Through Islamic America by Michael Muhammad Knight
Not for the faint of heart, Blue-Eyed Devil is the engaging and brutally honest travels of a bohemian John Walkeresque Muslim convert-turned-apostate-turned-progressive Muslim. With shades of Kerouac's On the Road, Knight's experiences of Islamic communities and movements, from the mainstream to the occult complete with sex, drugs and rock'n'roll offer a fascinating antithesis to most of the current literature. Of particular interest is his important research on W.D. Fard, the mysterious inspiration for the Nation of Islam.
