'A book that demands to be read' MOHSIN HAMID

'Terrific . . . deeply satisfying to read' KAMILA SHAMSIE

Arun and his two classmates, Aseem and Virendra, are the success stories of their generation. As graduates of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, they have smashed social barriers and played-out Gatsby-style fantasies across the globe.

Run and Hide is a lyrical and piercing story of morality, materialism and upheaval in an every-changing world.

'Sharp, provocative and engaging . . . Run and Hide might be the most zeitgeisty novel you could read' SPECTATOR

'One of the finest, bravest writers we have' JUNOT DIAZ

'It'll entertain the hell out of you' MOHAMMED HANIF

'A novel of loss and moral collapse worthy of Henry James' JOSHUA FERRIS

Pankaj Mishra transforms a visceral, intimate story of one man's humble origins into a kaleidoscopic portrait of a society bedazzled by power and wealth - what it means on a human level, and what it costs. Run and Hide is a spectacular, illuminating work of fiction -- Jennifer Egan
In his first novel in more than 20 years, acclaimed essayist Mishra splices a cautionary tale with elegant examination of globalisation and the perils of the changing world order. Immensely thought-provoking * Mail on Sunday *
The first novel in more than 20 years from the essayist and cultural analyst Pankaj Mishra is as sharp, provocative and engagé as you'd expect... As an exuberant chronicle of a late capitalist world fatally mediated by Twitter and Instagram, Run and Hide might be the most zeitgeisty novel you could read * Spectator *
A wonderfully rich and enjoyable novel . . . a work for our time and one that will surely be read many years on for what will then be its historical interest . . . a novel built to last * Scotsman *
A lyrical letter from the new India...a profoundly literary voice, as interested in how to write about a subject as the subject itself * Guardian *
