Reza Aslan's five favorite books

Reza Aslan is author of No god but God and Beyond Fundamentalism.

For The Week magazine he named five favorite foreign novels.

One title on the list:
The Blind Owl by Sadegh Hedayat

Widely recognized as one of the most important literary works of the 20th century in any language, The Blind Owl is a Kafkaesque novel about a lonely (and possibly psychotic) man living in a terrifying nightmare world of his own making, where the only person he can trust with his thoughts is his own shadow.
