From the twice Booker-shortlisted author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist and 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. 'A transformative tale . . . compellingly readable and strangely musical' Guardian 'With this big-hearted novel of ideas, Mohsin Hamid confronts challenging truths with insight, wisdom, and - above all else - limitless compassion' Tayari Jones, An American Marriage

Recensioner i media

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 * Oprah Daily * 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' * Guardian * The electric premise, borrowed from Kafka's The Metamorphosis, looks set to update a classic to make it urgently relevant * Evening Standard * [A] powerful contemporary update of Kafka's The Metamorphosis -- A Financial Times Book of the Year
