Exit West tells the story of Saeed and Nadia, two lovers whose city is torn apart when militants overthrow their country’s government. As the destruction intensifies, news spreads of magical doors to locations around the world. Saeed and Nadia find a door and leave everything behind to build a new life in environments hostile to their very existence. With deep empathy, author Mohsin Hamid challenges readers to reconsider immigration, what it means to belong or not belong, and how a sense of entitlement can desensitize people to refugees’ human rights.
