Editorial reviews (5 reviews)

In this energetic, thoroughly engaging novel, Mohsin Hamid has created a memorable portrait of life in the 'change-scented urban archipelago spanning not just rising Asia but the entire planet.' In that sense, the 'you' of the novel serves as an exemplar of the rewards and perils of upward mobility in every country and in every age.
