Our Spotlight Pick this month is Mohsin Hamid’s Exit West--a timely and original tale of two young lovers who end up refugees when their home country descends into chaos. Instead of fleeing on foot, or by boat or plane, Nadia and Saheed hear about a mysterious door, a portal to a faraway place…(that is not Narnia, but has its own perils). Senior Editor Chris Schluep says that Exit West is "an intimate human story about an experience shared by countless people of the world, one that most Americans just witness on television."
