Hamid, Mohsin: The Last White Man

The New York Times Bestseller 2022

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
