Description

“Smart, fierce, and poignant: perhaps the most exciting novel yet by this very talented writer.” Mohsin Hamid, author of Exit West and The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Young Pakistani photographer and his American born Pakistani-German lover travel from California to Pakistan in an attempt to exorcize their pasts, in order to build their shared future.

Up in the glaciers of Northern Pakistan, a tragedy at a mountain lake entwines the fates of the two lovers with the people they encounter there: Miryam, a nomad, travelling with her family into the mountains to escape persecution, and Irfan, haunted by ghosts and hoping that the mountains may offer him a reprieve from his troubles.

An expansive look at the intersection of cultures and what happens at those intersections, Thinner Than Skin is a powerful and moving read.
