"In his quest for an indigenous American Islam, Michael Muhammad Knight embarks on a series of interstate odysseys. Traveling 20,000 miles by Greyhound in sixty days, he squats in run-down mosques, pursues Muslim romance, is detained at the U.S.-Canadian border with a trunkload of Shi'a literature, crashes Islamic Society of North America conventions, stink-palms Cat Stevens, limps across Chicago to find the grave of Noble Drew Ali, and hunts down the truth of the Nation of Islam mystery-man, W.D. Fard, filling dozens of notebooks along the way. In the course of his adventures Knight sorts out his own relationship to Islam on his journey from punk provocateur to a recognized voice in the community, and watches first-hand the collapse of a liberal Islamic dream: the Progressive Muslim Union. Taking a unique perspective on Islam's intersection with race, gender, and Americanization, Blue-Eyed Devil offers a brutally honest but ultimately compassionate look at the long, strange history of American Islam" -- www.amazon.com
