#34 Exit West: Migrants and magical doors with author, Mohsin Hamid

“I know the power of finding a book that changes someone’s life.”

Mohsin Hamid, the award-winning novelist of Exit West and The Reluctant Fundamentalist. 

With the rise of technology, globalisation and fake news, we’re living in an absurd present and uncertain future. In this episode, we journey through stories from Mohsin’s books and his writing form to explore the concept of migration being a fundamental human right. The interview provides a fresh and diverse voice on the state of international politics today, the global immigrant crisis and highlights the role of fiction as the human species evolves from storytelling around campfires to glowing screens.
