Listen

Following the bombings in Boston, President Obama asked, "why did young men who grew up and studied here, as part of our communities and our country, resort to such violence?". It's a question that's explored in Mohsin Hamid's book, The Reluctant Fundamentalist. With the film version of that book being released this week, Mohsin Hamid spoke to Jian about extremism, the ways migration can complicate identity, and why his latest bookHow to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, is more hopeful than his past work.
