PageTurners Discuss "Exit West"

Tuesday, Apr 17, 2018 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Join PageTurners for a discussion of Exit West by Mohsin Hamid. A finalist for the Man Booker Prize and a New York Times bestseller, this love story imagines the forces that drive ordinary people from their homes into the uncertain embrace of new lands.

In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet—sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors—doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through.
