Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Discontent and Its Civilizations collects the best of Mohsin Hamid's writing on subjects as diverse and wide-ranging as Pakistan, fatherhood, the death of Osama Bin Laden and the writing of The Reluctant Fundamentalist.

Unified by the author's humane, clear-headed and witty voice, the audiobook makes a compelling case for recognising our common humanity while relishing our diversity—both as readers and citizens, for resisting the artificial mono-identities of religion or nationality or race and for always judging a country or nation by how it treats its minorities, as 'Each individual human being is, after all, a minority of one'.
