Mohsin Hamid’s Exit West was one of the biggest novels of 2017. An international bestseller, it was shortlisted for the Man Booker and Kirkus Prize and named one of the 10 best books of the year by The New York Times, NPR, and The Guardian—and no wonder. Exit West is at once an affecting love story, a work of inventive literary fantasy, and a compelling reflection on war, displacement, and what it means to leave the only country you know. The New Yorker wrote that the novel “feels immediately canonical, so firm and unerring is Hamid’s understanding of our time and its most pressing questions.”
Hamid will be in conversation with Steve Inskeep, host of NPR's Morning Edition, as well as NPR's morning news podcast Up First.
