Moth Smoke is the first novel by Mohsin Hamid, author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist

'You know you're in trouble when you can't meet a woman's eye, particularly if the woman happens to be your best friend's wife.'

In Lahore, Daru Shezad is a junior banker with a hashish habit. When his old friend Ozi moves back to Pakistan, Daru wants to be happy for him. Ozi has everything: a beautiful wife and child, an expensive foreign education - and a corrupt father who bankrolls his lavish lifestyle.

As jealousy sets in, Daru's life slowly unravels. He loses his job. Starts lacing his joints with heroin. Becomes involved with a criminally-minded rickshaw driver. And falls in love with Ozi's lonely wife.

But how low can Daru sink? Is he guilty of the crime he finds himself on trial for?

'A vivid portrait of contemporary young Pakistani life, where frustration and insecurity feed not only the snobbery, decadence and aspirations of the rich, but also the resentment of the poor'The Times

'Fast-paced, intelligent . . . pulls us, despite ourselves, into its spiralling wake'New Yorker

'A subtly audacious . . .prodigious descendant of hard-boiled lit and film noir. A steamy and often darkly amusing book about sex, drugs, and class warfare in postcolonial Asia' Village Voice

'Stunning, a hip page-turner' Los Angeles Times

'Sharply observed, powerful, evocative' Financial Times

'A novel of remarkable wit, poise, profundity, and strangeness. A treat'Esquire
