    On the ten-year anniversary, I did a round-up of all the novels about 9/11, and this was my favorite. But I still haven’t seen the Mira Nair film, have you? Not long ago, I got to interview Mohsin Hamid about his next novel, “How To Get Rich in Rising Asia.” It wasn’t quite as much fun to talk to him as I thought it would be, somehow. He was very careful about what he would and wouldn’t say. Maybe it comes with the territory.

      oh, it’s “…Filthy Rich in Rising Asia,” I think.

        I haven’t seen the film yet but I’d like to, if for no other reason than to see how they play the ending. From the novel as well as one or two other things I’ve read Hamid seems thoughtful, striving for balance on weighty topics. Not surprised he came across as cautious in your interview.
