Ansary writes narrative nonfiction, which is to say, he tells the story of things that really happened. Most of his work can be described as history and memoir, although there’s the odd historical novel in there too. Most of his work, fiction and nonfiction, explores the zone where civilizations overlap and cultures interact.
