An Evening with Mohsin Hamid

Tuesday 30th January 2018
18:30 at Waterstones, London - Gower Street


The list of accolades awarded to Mohsin Hamid's Exit West is almost as long as the book itself: shortlisted for the 2017 Man Booker Prize; finalist for the 2017 Kirkus Prize; selected as a Book of the Year by the New York Times Book Review, Time Magazine and the Guardian; and a Top 10 Bestseller in the UK and US. Join him in conversation with critic Anita Sethi as he speaks about this remarkable work of fiction, which is newly published in paperback.

About the Book

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 star-gazing. This is their 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.
Tickets are £6/4 (students) and include wine and a 15% discount on copies of Lullaby purchased on the night. Book online, in store or by phoning 020 7636 1577.
