Mohsin Hamid joins us on our opening day to discuss The Last White Man. This blistering novel sees Anders, a white man, wake up to find he has turned a ‘deep and undeniable brown’, with clear echoes of Kafka’s Metamorphosis. Hamid’s previous books, The Reluctant Fundamentalist and the Booker-shortlisted Exit West, have shown him to be a master at finding original perspectives on 21st century life. Today's conversation is chaired by Daniel Hahn.
