Exploring race, belonging in Mohsin Hamid’s 'The Last White Man'

In The Last White Man, Mohsin Hamid takes a page out of Franz Kafka’s book when his own main character wakes up one day looking completely differently. His new book tackles issues of otherism, belonging, and to what extent race is an imagined social construct.

Reset talks to the critically-acclaimed author about his latest work.
