Up in the glaciers of Northern Pakistan, a tragedy at a mountain lake entwines the fates of two lovers with the people they encounter there: Miryam, a nomad, travelling with her family into the mountains to escape persecution, and Irfan, haunted by ghosts and hoping that the mountains may offer him a reprieve from his troubles.

"Smart, fierce, and poignant: perhaps the most exciting novel yet by this very talented writer." Mohsin Hamid, author of Exit West and The Reluctant Fundamentalist

A Young Pakistani photographer and his American born Pakistani-German lover travel from California to Pakistan in an attempt to exorcize their pasts, in order to build their shared future.

An expansive look at the intersection of cultures and what happens at those intersections, Thinner Than Skin is a powerful and moving read.
