Exit West is written in the past tense.
The title Exit West is symbolic of the mass migration from conflict zones toward the global "West": peaceful and economically powerful countries that offer opportunities for migrants to build new lives. The book's two main characters, Nadia and Saeed, take part in this migration, first moving from their home country in the Middle East to the Greek island of Mykonos, then to London, and finally to Marin, California.
