Booker-nominated author Mohsin Hamid will introduce his new novel, The Last White Man.

About this event

In an unnamed, predominantly white country, Anders wakes one morning to discover that his skin has turned dark. At first, he tells only Oona, an old friend and new lover – and soon, reports surface of similar occurrences across the land. In a time of unsettling change, some see the transformations as the overturning of an established order, while for others, a sense of profound loss wars with profound love.

Hamid’s urgently relevant fifth novel reimagines Kafka’s The Metamorphosis to explore race against a backdrop of uneasy nationalism and populism. His previous works, including The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Exit West, were celebrated for their lyrical prescience and thoughtful investigations into religion and extremism, politics, and the migration and refugee crises.

He will be in conversation with Today in Focus host Nosheen Iqbal, and will take some of your questions in this livestreamed event.

Running time: 60 minutes
