In Mohsin Hamid's new novel, 'How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia,' a poor young boy from an impoverished village comes to a sprawling, wild, sometimes violent city, where he makes and loses a fortune. Jeffrey Brown talks with the Hamid about why the story is told like a self-help book and what it takes to make it in Asia.
