FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgMohsin Hamid's new novel, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia (Riverhead), mocks the genre of the self-help manual. It delivers a serious story about the difficulty of being a full person in a culture that prizes accumulation above all else. Set in a rapidly globalizing Asian country, the book is written entirely in the second person, narrated by an instructional voice that guides an unnamed character through business and romance.
