Exit West: Mohsin Hamid and Alex Clark

Fully Booked
London Review Bookshop

In Mohsin Hamid’s Man Booker shortlisted Exit West (Penguin) two young people meet in an unnamed city, ‘swollen by refugees but still mostly at peace, or at least not yet openly at war.’ Blending elements of magic realism with stark reportage, Hamid’s vision of a city, and a world, in crisis powerfully addresses many of the most pressing issues of these current, troubled times. Mohsin Hamid will read from his novel, and discuss it with Alex Clark of the Guardian.
