How To Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid

The astonishing and riveting tale of a man’s journey from impoverished rural boy to corporate tycoon, it steals its shape from the business self-help books devoured by youths all over ‘rising Asia’.  It follows its nameless hero to the sprawling metropolis where he begins to amass an empire built on the most fluid and increasingly scarce of goods: water.  Yet his heart remains set on something else, on the pretty girl whose star rises alongside his, their paths crossing and re-crossing in a love affair sparked and snuffed out again by the forces that careen their fates along.

The hero of the story could be any one of us, hungry for a different life.  And ours too could be the fate that awaits him…

Fast-paced, vivid and emotionally absorbing, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia creates two unforgettable characters who find moments of transcendent intimacy in the midst of shattering change.

In this keenly-awaited follow-up to The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Mohsin Hamid confirms his place as a radically inventive story-teller with his finger on the world’s pulse.

Peer & Press Reviews

Mohsin Hamid has created an even more intriguing, compelling, and moving book than The Reluctant Fundamentalist…  It’s a marvelous book.

Philip Pullman

Written with the confidence and bravura of a man born to write.  Hamid is at the peak of his considerable powers here…  Completely unforgettable.

Dave Eggers, author of Heroes of the Frontier

A dazzling stylistic tour de force; a love story disguised as a self help parody freighted with sly social satire.  As timely and timeless a novel as I’ve read in years.

Jay McInerney, author of Bright, Precious Days
