    Pakistan-based writer MOHSIN HAMID's latest book is “How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia." Written as a self-help novel, with chapters like “Avoid Idealists” and “Befriend a Bureaucrat,” it follows the life of a poor boy who leaves his rural village in an unnamed country and grows up to be a successful corporate tycoon. Hamid’s previous novels "Moth Smoke" and "The Reluctant Fundamentalist" have been adapted for film. He joins Marty in the studio to talk about this book, his other stories and life in Pakistan.
