THE LAST WHITE MAN

À propos

From the internationally bestselling author of Exit West, a story of love, loss, and rediscovery in a time of unsettling changebr>br>One morning, Anders wakes to find that his skin has turned dark, his reflection a stranger to him. At first he tells only Oona, an old friend, newly a lover. Soon, reports of similar occurrences surface across the land. Some see in the transformations the long-dreaded overturning of an established order, to be resisted to a bitter end. In many, like Anders''s father and Oona''s mother, a sense of profound loss wars with profound love. As the bond between Anders and Oona deepens, change takes on a different shading: a chance to see one another, face to face, anew.br>br>''Gorgeously crafted . . .
