In the Footsteps of the Silver King follows one man's quest to recover his dead father's World Championship silver medal in soccer. Patrick is led through the West Coast and Iran to rediscover his father's past. The world he enters is so wrapped up in its dream of the 1960s that his world and his father's world become entangled. Tayyar explores America's relationship with history, popular culture, music, sports, immigration, and love in a vel that is equal parts comedy, family drama, and stalgia.
Paul Kareem Tayyar's previous books include Follow the Sun: Poems, Stories, and Reflections (Aortic Books), Postmark Atlantis (Level 4 Press), and Scenes From a Good Life (Tebot Bach). He lives in Southern California.
