Thursday Book Group discusses Exit West by Mohsin Hamid
Sequoya's Thursday Book Group hosts a book discussion of Exit West by Mohsin Hamid. In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet and embark on a furtive love affair and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. As familiar streets turn into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, 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, and emerge into an alien and uncertain future.
