"Of Windows and Doors" by Mohsin Hamid Originally published in the November 14, 2016 issue of The New Yorker.
I first read Mohsin Hamid when his second novel, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, was shortlisted for the 2007 Man Booker Prize. He’s also been the subject of one of our New Yorker posts in the past, when “The Third-Born” was published in 2012, though not one that garnered a lot of discussion (I’m not even sure if I read it). Hopefully we can do better this time around with “Of Windows and Doors”!
Please feel free to comment below. I look forward to reading the discussion!
