In 1986, when this autobiography opens, the author is a typical 14-year-old boy in Asyut in Upper Egypt. Attracted at first by the image of a radical Islamist group of 'strong Muslims', his involvement develops until he finds himself deeply committed to its beliefs and implicated in its activities.
