"Changez is living an immigrant's dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by the elite valuation firm of Underwood Samson. He thrives on the energy of New York, and his budding romance with elegant, beautiful Erica promises entry into Manhattan society at the same exalted level once occupied by his own family back in Lahore. But in the wake of September 11, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned and his relationship with Erica eclipsed by the reawakened ghosts of her past. And Changez's own identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and maybe even love"--Jacket

Discontent and its civilizations : dispatches from Lahore, New York, and London by Mohsin Hamid( Book )
15 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and French and held by 566 libraries worldwide
"From "one of his generation's most inventive and gifted writers" (The New York Times), intimate and sharply observed commentary on life, art, politics, and "the war on terror." Mohsin Hamid's brilliant, moving, and extraordinarily clever novels have not only made him an international bestseller, they have earned him a reputation as a "master critic of the modern global condition" (Foreign Policy). His stories are at once timeless and of-the-moment, and his themes are universal: love, language, ambition, power, corruption, religion, family, identity. Here he explores this terrain from a different angle in essays that deftly counterpoise the personal and the political, and are shot through with the same passion, imagination, and breathtaking shifts of perspective that gives his fiction its unmistakable electric charge. A "water lily" who has called three countries on three continents his home-Pakistan, the birthplace to which he returned as a young father; the United States, where he spent his childhood and young adulthood; and Britain, where he married and became a citizen-Hamid writes about overlapping worlds with fluidity and penetrating insight. Whether he is discussing courtship rituals or pop culture, drones or the rhythms of daily life in an extended family compound, he transports us beyond the scarifying headlines of an anxious West and a volatile East, beyond stereotype and assumption, and helps to bring a dazzling diverse global culture within emotional and intellectual reach."--

Imran Qureshi : where the shadows are so deep by Mohsin Hamid( Book )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
This volume focuses on Qureshi's use of miniature painting as a site for social commentary. The new commission draws upon the curve as a formal motif in the miniature tradition, responding to the dramatic architecture of the gallery space. The sequence of works begins with gentle scenes of nature, which are gradually transformed through the addition of darker elements. Hung at varying heights along the space, these delicate paintings subtly imply the uncertainty of what lies around the bend. The volume includes Mohsin Hamid's reflections on an encounter with the artist, as well as an essay by Eleanor Nairne, installation views and illustrations of recent work. This is the third title in a publication series by Barbican Art Gallery and Ridinghouse that focuses on the Curve exhibition programme. Exhibition: Barbican Centre, The Curve, London, UK (18.02-10.07.2016)
Exit west : a novel by Mohsin Hamid( Book )
3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
"From the internationally bestselling author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist and How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, a love story that unfolds in a world being irrevocably transformed by migration. 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, thrust into 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 violence and the threat of violence escalate, 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. Exit West is an epic compressed into a slender page-turner--both completely of our time and for all time, Mohsin Hamid's most ambitious and electrifying novel yet"--

Nell'ambiente della upper class Changez sembra aver anche trovato l'amore nell'artista fotografica Erica. Tutto va bene per lui quindi fino a quando l'11 settembre 2001 cambia di colpo le prospettive. La sua vita comincia a mutare di segno: è diventato improvvisamente l'islamico da amare od odiare, non più una persona. (Mymovies)

Bookclub in a Box discusses Mohsin Hamid's novel The reluctant fundamentalist : the complete package for readers and leaders by Marilyn Herbert( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The Reluctant Fundamentalist is more than the usual immigrant book of adaptation, struggle, and identity. It is the gripping tale of a young man who comes to America from Pakistan just prior to 9/11. The protagonist, Changez, is a Harvard educated businessman who works for a high-profile company that assesses the economic value of other companies. Changez is very successful in his chosen career, but then September 11 happens and everything changes. The setting is Lahore, Pakistan and the tale is told by one narrator, that of Changez, as he speaks to a nameless and faceless American tourist. The narration takes place in the span of a single evening, in fact, during a single meal, and Hamid manages to swing the reader on a pendulum of conflicting emotions and thoughts. The Bookclub-in-a-Box guide explores a number of important questions: who is this nameless American and why is he in Pakistan; how can one person have equal love for two countries that are at odds with each other in culture and outlook; how does such a person come to terms with his two worlds; and what is the significance of the word?reluctant? in the novel?s title, The Reluctant Fundamentalist. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide also includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author
