Praise

Advance praise for The Last White Man:

“[A] tale of poignant magical realism. . . . Haunting and arresting in equal measure.” —Elle

“A brilliantly realized allegory of racial transformation. . . . Hamid’s story is poignant and pointed, speaking to a more equitable future in which widespread change, though confusing and dislocating in the moment, can serve to erase the divisions of old as they fade away with the passing years. A provocative tale that raises questions of racial and social justice at every turn.” —Kirkus (starred review)

“With one remarkable book after another, Mohsin Hamid has proven himself to be one of the 21st century’s most essential writers. This is, perhaps, his most remarkable work yet. THE LAST WHITE MAN is myth and poetry operating as a deeper form of social commentary, and an extraordinary vision of human possibility.” Ayad Akhtar, author of Homeland Elegies

“Searing, exhilarating. . . . reimagines Kafka’s iconic The Metamorphosis for our racially charged era. … Hamid brings a restless, relentless brilliance to his characters’ journeys and the revelations, public and private, that inform us all. … Gorgeously crafted, morally authoritative, The Last White Man concludes on a note of hope, a door jarred open just enough to let transcendence pour through.” Hamilton Cain, Oprah Daily

Praise for Mohsin Hamid:


“Hamid’s enticing strategy is to foreground the humanity. . . . [He] exploits fiction’s capacity to elicit empathy and identification to imagine a better world.” —The New York Times Book Review

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

“Moving, audacious, and indelibly human.” Entertainment Weekly

“Feels immediately canonical, so firm and unerring is Hamid’s understanding of our time and its most pressing questions.” —The New Yorker
