Presented by the Salon
The Salon, dedicated to presenting the best of today’s literary writers in an intimate setting, welcomes Mohsin Hamid, bestselling author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist, for a reading and conversation about his latest book, Exit West. A love story set in a world being irrevocably transformed by migration, the tale follows a young couple in an unnamed country as their city collapses around them and they are forced to join a wave of migrants fleeing for their lives. Tickets are very limited for this event, which includes culinary delights from local purveyors.
Mohsin Hamid is the internationally bestselling author of Moth Smoke, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia and Discontent and its Civilizations. His award-winning novels have been adapted for the cinema, shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and translated into more than thirty languages. Hamid now resides in Lahore, his birthplace, after living for a number of years in New York and London.
“Hamid reaffirms his place as one of his generation’s most inventive and gifted writers.”
