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's 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.

'Lyrical and urgent . . . peels away the dross of bigotry to expose the beauty of our common humanity.' - O, the Oprah Magazine

'Powerful, vivid, poignant . . . Hamid is the master' The Sunday Times

Reviews

The electric premise, borrowed from Kafka's The Metamorphosis, looks set to update a classic to make it urgently relevant Mohsin Hamid's The Last White Man is a visionary novel exploring race and identity... it's another bracing achievement from a consummate master, its silken prose breathing fresh air into fusty debates about race and identity A hypnotic race fable . . . In the hands of such a deft and humane writer as Hamid, a bizarre construct is moved far beyond any mere 'what if' [A] powerful contemporary update of Kafka's The Metamorphosis Expand reviews
