One morning a man wakes up to find himself totally transformed. Anders’ skin darkened overnight and the reflection in the mirror seemed strange to him.
At first, he only shares his secret with Oona, an old friend-turned-lover. Reports of similar events soon surfaced. Across the country people are awakening in new incarnations, unaware of how their neighbors, friends and family will receive them.
Some see the feared overthrow of the established order in the transformations, which must be resisted to the bitter end.
For many, like Anders’ father and Oona’s mother, a sense of deep loss and uneasiness fights against deep love. As Anders and Oona’s bond deepens, the change takes on a different nuance: a chance for some kind of rebirth, a chance to see ourselves face to face again.
In the “lyrical and haunting” prose of Mohsin Hamid (O Magazine), The Last White Man powerfully increases our capacity for empathy and the transcendence over intolerance, fear and anger it can achieve.

Mohsin Hamid’s The Last White Man book presents a beautifully simple meditation on race, discrimination and color. Anders is a white man who wakes up one morning to find his skin has darkened and he is virtually unrecognizable to those he knows. Reactions from his father, friends, and girlfriend Oona range from almost entirely negative; they can’t help but think of him now that his skin is darker. Anders regrets losing his whiteness and begins to learn to navigate a world where he is disadvantaged and discriminated against because of the color of his skin.
Eventually, as the spontaneous shift from lighter to darker skinned in the population becomes more common, the rise in interracial violence slows down; Anyone who practices violence and hatred suddenly finds himself a member of the previously persecuted group. Oona, Anders’ friend, eventually finds herself changed too, but instead of mourning the loss of her pale skin, she rejoices in the transformation.
The Last White Man addresses many aspects of race, not to explicitly say that a person’s skin color makes no difference, but to explore the nature of those differences in the context of these fictional characters. As Mohsin Hamid points out in the introduction to the ARC, race is a construct. The Last White Man gives the reader plenty of reason to question their own prejudices and beliefs about those around them.
