Book Giveaway: How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia

Win a copy of a new book by the acclaimed author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Moth Smoke. The Washington Post calls How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia “extraordinarily clever“ and “surprisingly moving”.

If How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia sounds like a business self-help book, it is because the author inventively evokes that genre to tell the rags-to-riches story of an unnamed narrator in an unidentified developing nation.

How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia came out earlier this week, and it is already receiving a lot of praise. The New York Times calls this novel a “a compelling story that works on two levels — in this case as a deeply moving and highly specific tale of love and ambition, and as a larger, metaphorical look at the mind-boggling social and economic changes sweeping ‘rising Asia.’” Moreover, “Mr. Hamid reaffirms his place as one of his generation’s most inventive and gifted writers.” Read The New York Times review here, another review from NPR here, and an interview with the author from The Atlantic here.

Among other commendations, Hamid’s novel The Reluctant Fundamentalist was shortlisted for the Man Booker Award and Moth Smoke was a PEN/Hemingway Award finalist.

I have one paperback advance copy of How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia to give away to a lucky winner.
