The New York Times Bestseller 2022
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
