When I read a book that I enjoy, it always leaves me wanting to know the author better. Readers of Exit West will have that wish fulfilled with this autobiographical collection of essays from Hamid, subtitled "Dispatches from New York, Lahore and London." His reflections on Pakistan, thoughts on life as an emerging writer, and making pasta for Toni Morrison in his dorm room all contribute to a fuller picture of this exciting writer.
