Summary
Post-9/11 Chicago becomes the site of a cultural collision involving a sixties-style anti-establishment professor who is targeted for his relationship with an African-American woman, a veiled Ph.D. candidate whose traditional upbringing is challenged by her American experiences, and an émigré whose western values are countered by questions about his daughter's honor
