Mohsin Hamid

Exit West

Summary: 
An astonishing portrait of migrants in the world of the not-too-distant future-- and their impact. Through an at-first puzzling, and then powerful, metaphor of "doors" Hamid minimizes physical distances crossed and emphasizes connection and the trauma of displacement. Nadia and Saeed are both fully drawn characters we grow to understand and love and also Everymigrant whose story we can only glimpse. A masterful and ultimately hopeful parable that is a heartbreaking enchantment.
