Book Hour: The Bargain from the Bazaar – A Family’s Day of Reckoning in Lahore


Pakistan remains a mystery to the United States but its families share the same hopes and dreams as American families. This book talks about the struggling democracy, the religious fundamentalism, the terrorism, and the peoples’ desire to prosper democratically and economically. The story is told through the experiences of the Reza family in Lahore, Pakistan. They are hard-working and honest. The three sons take different paths representing the conditions and conflicts in Pakistan. Salman helps the family at the family business. Kamran is an idealistic law student trying to raise the democratic hopes of Pakistan through freedom and justice. Daniyal fell under the thrall of a fundamentalist imam and a mercenary who uses religion and terrorism to build his bank account. The story will captivate you.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
