About Exit West
Exit West chronicles the lives of two young lovers from an unnamed country at the onset of civil war. Nadia and Saeed flee their ancestral home through a series of special portals taking them across the world. Exit West was New York Times Best Book of the Year (2017), winner of the L.A. Times Book Prize for Fiction, and the Aspen Words Literary Prize. A real crowd-pleaser of a novel, Barack Obama called this one of the best books he read in 2017, and it is currently being adapted into a feature film for Netflix.
