A glorious summer of literary treats awaits and the next stellar author to visit us will be Mohsin Hamid!

We are really excited that the internationally best-selling author of Exit West and The Reluctant Fundamentalist can join us in St Andrews for his latest novel The Last White Man.

One morning, Anders wakes to find that his skin has turned dark, his reflection a stranger to him. At first he tells only Oona, an old friend, newly a lover. Soon, reports of similar occurrences surface across the land. Some see in the transformations the long-dreaded overturning of an established order, to be resisted to a bitter end. In many, like Anders’s father and Oona’s mother, a sense of profound loss wars with profound love. As the bond between Anders and Oona deepens, change takes on a different shading: a chance to see one another, face to face, anew.

A story of love, loss, and rediscovery in a time of unsettling change, The Last White Man is sure to be one of the stand-out novels of the year.
