"Exit West" by Mohsin Hamid *****

  • Audiobook
  • Pakistani author
  • Originally published in 2017
  • Review:  The stark reality and fearsome uncertainty of regime change meets the need for human intimacy in this powerful novella by the marvelous writer, Mohsin Hamid.   Reality and posdibilty fuse in a story of the present and the future.  We are all time migrants.  What a concept!  Hamid is gifted with the ability to communicate in great depth with minimal prose.  He is a master of the precise use of language, and his skills result in a profoundly moving and provocative story.
