Exit West is an extraordinary story of love and hope from the bestselling, Man Booker-shortlisted author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
This is Nadia. She is fiercely independent with an excellent sense of humour and a love of smoking alone on her balcony late at night.
This is Saeed. He is sweet and shy and kind to strangers. He also has a balcony but he uses his for stargazing.
This is their love story: a love story, but also a story about how we live now and how we might live tomorrow. Saeed and Nadia are falling in love, and their city is falling apart. Here is a world in crisis and two human beings travelling through it.
Exit West is a heartfelt and radical act of hope – a novel to restore your faith in humanity and in the power of imagination.
Mohsin Hamid writes regularly for the New York Times, the Guardian and the New York Review of Books, and is the author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist (shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize), Moth Smoke, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia and Discontents and Its Civilizations. Born and raised mostly in Lahore, he has since also lived in London and New York.
