Novelist Mohsin Hamid’s latest book is a collection of non-fiction essays exploring his dual identity as a Pakistani who grew up in part in the U.S. and spent years living in the West. Poignant and funny, his dispatches describe his home country’s “recurring role” as villain in the global news media. The essays span more than a decade and include personal stories about fatherhood, the writing life, and what sustains Hamid’s optimism about the future of his home country.
