Led by Sarah McNally, our next International Literature Book Club takes place on Monday, June 4th, at 7 p.m., downstairs at 52 Prince Street. We will discuss Exit West by Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid.
Writing in spare, crystalline prose, Hamid conveys the experience of living in a city under siege with sharp, stabbing immediacy. . . . He also captures how insidiously violence alters the calculus of daily life: how windows with beautiful views become a liability; how funerals become smaller, more rushed affairs because of fighting in the streets. -- Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
