Mohsin Hamid & Jo Hamya: The Last White Man

In his fifth novel The Last White Man (Hamish Hamilton) Mohsin Hamid continues his exploration of cultural and racial displacement, commenced so brilliantly with Moth SmokeThe Reluctant FundamentalistHow to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia and Exit West. In what has been described as a contemporary remoulding of Kafka’s ‘Metamorphosis’ a man awakes one morning to find that his skin has turned dark.

Hamid was in conversation with Jo Hamya, author of Three Rooms (Vintage).
