Mohsin Hamid’s new compelling novel, Exit West recounts the story of the migrants Saeed and Nadia, who leave an unnamed country in the midst of a civil war and journey to Greece, England and eventually the United States in an effort to invent new lives for themselves.
The first half of their story is about how war warps everyday life; the second half, a tale of globalization and its discontents. The fiercely independent Nadia is feverishly keen to find a way out of the besieged city, and she and her more introspective boyfriend, Saeed, soon find an agent, who for a fee, promises to supply them with an exit plan.
