Bienvenidos a Occidente es una bellísima fábula sobre los refugiados, una novela con una sólida posición ética que nos cuestiona en qué mundo queremos vivir. Por Mohsin Hamid, uno de los autores más reputados de la actualidad. La historia de amor furtivo de Nadia y Said tiene lugar en una ciudad llena de puntos de control y bombas. Es un laberinto humano donde, al empezar la guerra civil, surgen extrañas habladurías: «rumores sobre puertas que podían llevarlo a uno a otro lugar, concretamente a lugares remotos, alejados de aquella trampa mortal de país». En una historia épica de tremenda actualidad, esta insólita pareja de amantes huirá para recalar primero en Mikonos y luego ir desplazándose hacia el oeste, compartiendo el periplo vital de millones de personas que sufren en sus carnes el rechazo (o, en ocasiones, la bienvenida) de Occidente. Reseñas: «Dinámica y lapidaria. Una novela absorbente.» Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times «Elegante y actual. Hamid es un escritor tan romántico como político: en el centro de sus novelas siempre late una historia de amor.» Louis Wise, The Sunday Times «Una obra maestra, que estira los límites de lo verosímil para hablar del lugar en el mundo que ocupan inmigrantes y refugiados. Pero es también una novela asentada en lo real. Un libro bellísimo.» Michael Chabon «En el corazón de la novela, la cuestión moral sobre los derechos migratorios llega donde ninguna otra obra ha llegado todavía.» Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic «Impresionante. Bienvenidos a Occidente confirma la reputación de Hamid como ventrílocuo genial e implicado en los asuntos más urgentes de nuestro tiempo.» Andrew Motion, The Guardian «Extraordinaria.» Zadie Smith «Lo que sitúa a Bienvenidos a Occidente en la élite de la novela contemporánea es su manera de narrar,como ningún otro libro, lo que está sucediendo hoy y forma parte ya de la Historia.» Davide Piacenza, Rivista Studio «Necesitamos más escritores como Hamid. No nos conduce a la utopía, sino a la puerta de un futuro cercano donde se entrevén siluetas de forasteros: solo hay que cruzar el umbral y conocerlos.» Viet Thanh Nguyen

An instant New York Times Bestseller "It was as if Hamid knew what was going to happen to America and the world, and gave us a road map to our future... At once terrifying and ... oddly hopeful." -Ayelet Waldman, The New York Times Book Review "Moving, audacious, and indelibly human." -Entertainment Weekly, "A" rating "A breathtaking novel...[that] arrives at an urgent time." -NPR.org As featured in the Skimm, on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Fresh Air, PBS Newshour, the cover of the New York Times Book Review, and more, an astonishingly visionary love story that imagines the forces that drive ordinary people from their homes into the uncertain embrace of new lands. In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet--sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors--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. . . . Exit West follows these remarkable characters as they emerge into an alien and uncertain future, struggling to hold on to each other, to their past, to the very sense of who they are. Profoundly intimate and powerfully inventive, it tells an unforgettable story of love, loyalty, and courage that is both completely of our time and for all time.

Master Nathaniel Chanticleer, Mayor of Lud, was a man much given to introspection, doubting reality, and dreaming. None of which he revealed naturally. For the town of Lud was a prosperous, bustling little country port, situated at the confluence of two rivers, The Dapple and The Dawl, the former having its source in the land of Faerie, beyond the Elfin Marches and the Debatable Hills to the West.

From the bestselling author of How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, and Exit West, coming in March 2017, “a near-perfect essay collection, filled with insight, compassion, and intellect." (NPR) Mohsin Hamid’s brilliant, moving, and extraordinarily clever novels have not only made him an international bestseller, they have earned him a reputation as a “master critic of the modern global condition” (Foreign Policy). His stories are at once timeless and of-the-moment, and his themes are universal: love, language, ambition, power, corruption, religion, family, identity. Here he explores this terrain from a different angle in essays that deftly counterpoise the personal and the political, and are shot through with the same passion, imagination, and breathtaking shifts of perspective that gives his fiction its unmistakable electric charge. A “water lily” who has called three countries on three continents his home—Pakistan, the birthplace to which he returned as a young father; the United States, where he spent his childhood and young adulthood; and Britain, where he married and became a citizen—Hamid writes about overlapping worlds with fluidity and penetrating insight. Whether he is discussing courtship rituals or pop culture, drones or the rhythms of daily life in an extended family compound, he transports us beyond the scarifying headlines of an anxious West and a volatile East, beyond stereotype and assumption, and helps to bring a dazzling diverse global culture within emotional and intellectual reach.

From the author of the novels Moth Smoke, The Reluctant Fundamentalist and How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, here is an essential series of dispatches from the East, the West and the In Between. Divided into sections called 'Life', 'Politics' and 'Art', Discontent and its Civilisations collects the very best of Mohsin Hamid's writing on subjects as diverse, but always interrelated, as Pakistan; fatherhood; the death of Osama Bin Laden; the meaning of 'home'; the migrant life; religion and nationality; and the fault lines of our dangerously fragile geopolitical world. Unified by the author's distinctively humane, clear-headed, wise and witty voice, the book makes a compelling case for recognizing our common humanity while relishing our diversity -- both as readers and citizens; for resisting the artificial mono-identities of religion or nationality or race; and for always judging a country or nation by how it treats its minorities, as 'Each individual human being is, after all, a minority of one'. 'A man born to write.' Dave Eggers 'The new voice of a changing continent. A writer at the top of his game.' Metro 'A master critic of the modern global condition.' Foreign Policy

"Mr. Hamid reaffirms his place as one of his generation's most inventive and gifted writers." –Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "A globalized version of The Great Gatsby . . . [Hamid's] book is nearly that good." –Alan Cheuse, NPR "Marvelous and moving." –TIME Magazine From the internationally bestselling author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Exit West, coming March 2017, the boldly imagined tale of a poor boy’s quest for wealth and love His first two novels established Mohsin Hamid as a radically inventive storyteller with his finger on the world’s pulse. How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia meets that reputation—and exceeds it. The astonishing and riveting tale of a man’s journey from impoverished rural boy to corporate tycoon, it steals its shape from the business self-help books devoured by ambitious youths all over “rising Asia.” It follows its nameless hero to the sprawling metropolis where he begins to amass an empire built on that most fluid, and increasingly scarce, of goods: water. Yet his heart remains set on something else, on the pretty girl whose star rises along with his, their paths crossing and recrossing, a lifelong affair sparked and snuffed and sparked again by the forces that careen their fates along. How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia is a striking slice of contemporary life at a time of crushing upheaval. Romantic without being sentimental, political without being didactic, and spiritual without being religious, it brings an unflinching gaze to the violence and hope it depicts. And it creates two unforgettable characters who find moments of transcendent intimacy in the midst of shattering change. From the Trade Paperback edition.

“J.G. Ballard is the undisputed laureate of suburban psychosis. . . . A brilliant novel.”—Literary Review A violent novel filled with insidious twists, Kingdom Come follows the exploits of Richard Pearson, a rebellious, unemployed advertising executive, whose father is gunned down by a deranged mental patient in a vast shopping mall outside Heathrow Airport. When the prime suspect is released without charge, Richard’s suspicions are aroused. Investigating the mystery, Richard uncovers at the Metro-Centre mall a neo-fascist world whose charismatic spokesperson is whipping up the masses into a state of unsustainable frenzy. Riots frequently terrorize the complex, immigrant communities are attacked by hooligans, and sports events mushroom into jingoistic political rallies. In this gripping, dystopian tour de force, J.G. Ballard holds up a mirror to suburban mind rot, revealing the darker forces at work beneath the gloss of consumerism and flag-waving patriotism.
