The Department of English Writers Series welcomes novelist Mohsin Hamid.

Mohsin Hamid is perhaps best known for his 2007 novel, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, which was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize and made into a film by Mira Nair in 2013. A graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, Hamid began his career as a management consultant before his first novel, Moth Smoke, was named a finalist for the 2000 PEN/Hemingway Award.

As a journalist, Hamid has published essays in various periodicals, including The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Guardian, and TIME Magazine.  Selections of his nonfiction appear in Discontent and its Civilizations (2016). His most recent novel, Exit West (2017), mixes the real and surreal as it follows the lives of a young couple fleeing their unnamed city after the onset of war.  

This event is free and open to the public.
