I’m a white guy. For that I am awarded privilege . I know the score. I see it all around me. I’ve worked my ass off to have a comfortable life . Wife, kids, house etc.
The immigration issue confuses me. The never ending violence in the Middle East confuses me. I just couldn’t get my head wrapped around it.
This book changed me. It showed me what I thought was American ingenuity and taught me tenacity and grit are universal.
I will never look at a Middle Eastern person the same and am embarrassed that I let my myopic personal narrative carry on for so many years.
Thank you Dave Eggars and thank you Mohktar for giving me the gift of clear vision.

Monk of Mocha is a wonderful adventure. We follow Mokhtar’s story, from delinquent teenager to Indiana Jones adventurer, bringing the treasure of long lost Yemeni coffee to the world. Egger’s style eggs you onward (see what I did there:)). Graham voice is powerful, clear, and compelling. Loved it!
