In Moth Smoke, this Pakistani author told the story of a banker’s fall from grace; in The Reluctant Fundamentalist, an American immigrant came to resent his adopted home. Hamid's propulsive and formally playful prose continues in the new How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, the tale of a rural boy who moves to a nameless metropolis and becomes a wealthy businessman, all while pining after one woman.
