The internationally best-selling Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid now brings together a selection of his non-fiction, written from vantage points in New York, London, and Lahore, where he has variously lived over 15 years, in the provocatively entitled collection Discontent and Its Civilizations: Dispatches from Lahore, New York, and London.
These collected essays reflect on life, art, and politics from 2000-2014, with musings on topics ranging from writing, migration, fatherhood, and the Pakistan arts scene to drones, religion, war, and being regularly stopped at airports.
Hamid will be discussing his latest work and reflecting on larger topics from his latest work at the Asia Society in New York City on Monday, February 23, 2015. Members of SAJA will be eligible for discount tickets.
