More about the book!
In the Ghorami household sex was never mentioned. If the television was on and a kissing-with-tongues scene threatened the chaste and cardamom-scented home, it was swiftly terminated by a flick of the black box.
Monica Ali, the bestselling, Booker Prize-shortlisted author of Brick Lane, reads an excerpt from Love Marriage – her first new novel in a decade.
Love Marriage is a story about who we are and how we love – with all the complications and contradictions of life, desire, marriage and family.
What starts as a captivating social comedy develops into a heartbreaking and gripping story of two cultures, two families and two people trying to understand one another.
