Description

Arun knows there is only way out of this small railway town.

He is about to enrol in the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, determined to make something of himself.

But once there, he meets two friends who are prepared to go to unimaginable lengths to succeed. In just a few years, Arun’s friends become the success stories of their generation.

In private planes and expensive cars, from New York to Tuscany, they play out their Gatsby-style fantasies. In reality, someone is about to pay for their many transgressions, but who exactly will it be?

Will it be Arun? Will it be Alia, a female writer and influencer, who is piecing together the story of a global financial scandal?Run and Hide is a novel about a group of friends in an age of upheaval and breakdown; it is a story for our times.

‘Pankaj Mishra returns to fiction after two decades with a gripping and remarkable novel – his best work yet. It captures the trajectory of our time through insights and moments that are startling, pure, and have a strange inevitability’ AMIT CHAUDHURI

‘Pankaj Mishra kept us waiting 20 years for a new novel, and it becomes apparent, as soon as you pick up Run and Hide, that time has honed one of our greatest writing talents. The narrative draws you in more keenly than any boxset and the prose shimmers with wisdom. Marvellous’ SATHNAM SANGHERA

‘A profound, extraordinarily written, and devastating exploration of the ways the personal is always already the political. Unforgettable’ NEEL MUKHERJEE

‘It is the coup de literature our demented age needs from one of the finest, bravest writers we have’ JUNOT DIAZ
