In Mohsin Hamid's latest novel, a white man wakes up to find his skin has darkened. And he's not the only one - it's happening to other people, too. This remarkable story follows the ensuing violent consequences from citizens and the state, as well as fear, transformation, and hope. Works of fiction allow us to confront the challenges of today in an imaginative context.
In The Last White Man, we encounter a pandemic, globalised migration, and xenophobia, all thrown back to us in new forms and allowing us to see them in a new light. Mohsin Hamid, the British Pakistani novelist of The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Booker-Prize-nominated Exit West, talks to Osman Faruqi about whiteness, privilege, and the transcendent power of love.
