Book launch: Mohsin Hamid presents Exit West
In conversation with Philip Gourevitch
Wine reception to follow
Acclaimed novelist Mohsin Hamid (How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia) returns to Greenlight to launch his newest politically astute and structurally fantastical work. In a city on the brink of civil war, two young people just embarking on a furtive love affair begin to hear whispers about doors—doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. Named one of the most anticipated books of 2017 by Time Magazine, The New York Times, Washington Post and The Huffington Post, Exit West is a love story that unfolds across the rapidly changing face of a volatile world. ;Hamid discusses his work with Philip Gourevitch, longtime staff writer for The New Yorker and a former editor of The Paris Review, and author of several books including We Wish To Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families. A wine reception follows to celebrate the launch of Exit West.
