Mohsin Hamid is an award-winning British-Pakistani author whose books have been translated into more than forty languages. He studied at Princeton University and Harvard Law School and after graduation he worked in New York as a business advisor before moving to London in 2001. He published his first novel, Moth Smoke, in 2000, but he has achieved global success with his second novel, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, published in 2007, which has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize and IMPAC Dublin. The Guardian has included The Reluctant Fundamentalist in their selection of best books of the decade in 2009. His latest, highly-praised novel which has also been shortlisted for the Booker Prize and IMPAC Dublin, Exit West (2017) is Hamid’s first novel translated to Croatian.

Exit West

Saeed, a sensitive and somewhat restrained young man, and Nadia, self-aware, independent and free-spirited young woman, meet one night at “the class on corporative identity and product branding” in a town which has been “teetering on the edge of abyss”, at the edge of war.
