Waterstones Says

A masterful treatise on race, prejudice and nationalism, this explosive work from the author of Exit West envisages a world where the skin colour of white people the world over begins to turn darker.

From the internationally bestselling author of Exit West, a story of love, loss, and rediscovery in a time of unsettling change.

One morning, Anders wakes to find that his skin has turned dark, his reflection a stranger to him. At first he tells only Oona, an old friend, newly a lover. Soon, reports of similar occurrences surface across the land. Some see in the transformations the long-dreaded overturning of an established order, to be resisted to a bitter end. In many, like Anders' father and Oona's mother, a sense of profound loss wars with profound love. As the bond between Anders and Oona deepens, change takes on a different shading: a chance to see one another, face to face, anew.

“Remarkably Subtle”

Beautiful, meandering sentences dealing with some heavy themes but executed with surprising subtlety. I found myself chuckling at Hamid's brilliant grasp of sentence structure throughout.

Regardless of content,... More
