Imagine a better world. Some days, it feels difficult, but with Mohsin Hamid's Exit West, our May selection, it is infinitely possible, at least for the characters in his book. Magical doors, or are they metaphorical doors? What country are Saeed and Naomi in, and where are they going? What about their families, or the families of others on this journey? Questions and more questions stem from reading this magnificent novel. Hamid's last book, The Reluctant Fundamentalist was well received and even nominated for The Man Booker prize, but this one scales new literary heights. Come join the conversation on Tuesday, May 9 at 2pm or 6pm in our Community room. It will be intense.
