Mohsin Hamid, author of How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia
In conversation with editor Rebecca Saletan
Mohsin Hamid is the author of Booker Prize Finalist and New York Times bestseller The Reluctant Fundamentalist. His dazzlingly genre-bending new novel How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia appropriates the self-help genre to tell the story of one man’s rise from rural poverty to massive wealth, the girl whom he loves and loses, and the brutal, heart-rending sacrifices he must make along the way. Praised by fellow authors from Jay McInerny to Phillip Pullman, Hamid’s novel explores life in contemporary Asia and raises provocative questions about the global economy and the havoc that capitalism is wreaking on human bonds. Mohsin Hamid discusses his work with his long-time editor Rebecca Saletan, Vice President and Editorial Director of Riverhead Books.
