"Hamid's tale, played out against the background of Pakistan's recent testing
of a nuclear device, creates a powerful image of an insecure society toying with
its own dissolution." - Publishers Weekly.
"A pitch-perfect tale of the destruction of a young man ... Hamid is a writer to
watch." - Library Journal.

[the characters] Daru and Mumtaz, like an expert kite fighter, singing wings and
fraying strings." - The Los Angeles Times.
"[A] brisk, absorbing novel . . . Hamid steers us from start to finish with
assurance and care." - Jhumpa Lahiri, The New York Times Book Review.
"A first novel of remarkable wit, poise, profundity, and strangeness . . . Hamid
is a writer of gorgeous, lush prose and superb dialogue . . . Moth Smoke
is a treat." - Esquire.
