A dazzling work of structural, thematic, and psychological complexity, Anything Is Possible stands as an alternative to those books that depict a hopeless and despairing white working class in today's divided America. Sure, it is a work of fiction, but as the title suggests, with compassion, decency, and an open heart, even the most damaged individual can find it within herself to break the cycle of poverty, shame, and abuse.

By removing the melodrama inherent in the refugee’s plight and replacing it with quotidian incidents picked out in vivid, evocative and highly astute prose, Mohsin Hamid elevates Exit West from a self-pitying weeper or a heart-wrenching invective into a sympathetic, beautifully wrought tale of two people propelled by events outside of their control who seize their own destinies. While offering a dim view of the future, it also comforts with a portrait of humanity’s resiliency.

If every marriage is a cozy mystery, then every divorce is a chilling thriller. For this dark era of paranoia and alternative facts, there is a brave new literary device: the divorce plot. In this novel permeated by suspicion and ambiguity, the reader’s evolving relationship with the narrator mirrors the increasing alienation and suspicion of a troubled marriage. A Separation ponders the death of a marriage, the enigmatic bond between author and reader, and the imbalance of power of unequal relationships, whether they be literary or romantic.
