GUEST: MOHSIN HAMID
When we hear stories of refugees fleeing their home countries, they’re generally traveling by sea, land or air. But MOHSIN HAMID’s new novel, Exit West, imagines refugees escaping through a magical passageway to safer countries.  In this hour, Marty talks with Hamid about his new book, migrant escapes, and how refugees and natives coexist.
