A NovelBook - 2017
From Library Staff
I really appreciate this story and perspective on the current refugee crisis. It really opened my eyes to the struggles all refugees face and how their struggles affect their families and relationships. AL_MARIEI
This is a novel and so is allowed to be dreamy, dazzling, romantic and poetical. But use caution when thinking this is a story that is an accurate reflection of the very real horrors and challenges that refugees experience.
“To love is to enter into the inevitability of one day not being able to protect what is most valuable to you.” - Mohsin Hamid, "Exit West"
Exit West is winning awards and being featured on many "Best of 2017" lists. A wonderful story about refugees.
