Having lived in New York, London, and Pakistan, award-winning author Mohsin Hamid is no stranger to leaving his home to create a new life in a new city. In his fifth and most exhilarating book yet, Exit West, Hamid follows a passionate love affair between an unlikely duo who leave their homeland to escape escalating violence there.

Similarly, Shanthi Sekaran’s Lucky Boy gives voice to two young women whose fates are bound together through the love of a child, and deals with themes of displacement and building lives in a new country.
