‘In the Ghorami household sex was never mentioned’ – Listen to Monica Ali reading from her new novel Love Marriage
 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.
