Ep. 178 Pumping Iron With Mohsin Hamid

A fun conversation with Mohsin Hamid all about his new novel The Last White Man, how everything changed for him after 9/11, the importance of trying new things, how fiction allows you to become a child again, his workout regimen, and the genius of A Fish Called Wanda. Plus – Dave receives the glass booth treatment, Laura gets a needle shot up her foot, and Andrew is pulled over by cops on the same date three out of the last four years. We also recommend: The Heavenly Table by Donald Ray Pollock, Honor by Thrity Umrigar, and The Interstellar Slayer by Scott Baron. Audiobook of the Week is Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing.
