Exit West




An unforgettable love story about how we live now - from the bestselling, Man Booker shortlisted author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist.

In a city swollen by refugees and bubbling with civil unrest, two young people fall in love. Their homeland is on the brink of war. One day soon they must leave it behind: striking out into the unknown, searching for some corner of the world that might be safe.

Exit West is an extraordinary, sweeping journey, reaching far across the globe and deep into the human heart. In a world of upheaval and fear, how can we hold onto our humanity? In a world of closed borders, what happens when a door is opened? Mohsin Hamid's novel blazes triumphantly in the darkness, singing from the eye of the storm.
