Here’s what people are saying about it…

“A novel of huge ambition and entirely original – by turns hilarious, beguiling, thought-provoking, and tinged with magic. I couldn’t put it down.” – Stef Penney, author, winner of the 2006 Costa Book Award

“The main characters stay with you: the entwined yet intensely rivalrous siblings, the unknowable, mesmerising outsider, and a range of Muslim relatives defying all stereotypes … They take you on an audacious, at times bewildering, always enthralling journey.” – Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, journalist and author

“Full of humour, passion and the kind of multi-layered portrayal of the British Muslim community that you don’t often find in fiction. It shouldn’t be possible to pull off such ambitious political scope alongside laugh-out-loud comedy, but somehow the writers do and with a light touch.” – Viv Groskop, comedienne, broadcaster and author
