The first new novel in a decade from the bestselling, Booker Prize-shortlisted author of BRICK LANE

'I absolutely loved it. Exquisitely written with big heartedness, intelligence and passion' RUTH JONES, author of NEVER GREENER

Yasmin Ghorami has a lot to be grateful for: a loving family, a fledgling career in medicine, and a charming, handsome fiancee, fellow doctor Joe Sangster.

But as the wedding day draws closer and Yasmin's parents get to know Joe's firebrand feminist mother, both families must confront the unravelling of long-held secrets, lies and betrayals.

As Yasmin dismantles her own assumptions about the people she holds most dear, she's also forced to ask herself what she really wants in a relationship and what a 'love marriage' actually means.

Love Marriage is a story about who we are and how we love in today's Britain - with all the complications and contradictions of life, desire, marriage and family. What starts as a captivating social comedy develops into a heart-breaking and gripping story of two cultures, two families and two people trying to understand one another.

'Bold, compassionate, big-hearted, pitch-perfectly written, and utterly unputdownable' NEEL MUKHERJEE, Booker Prize shortlisted author of THE LIVES OF OTHERS

'Warm, affectionate and hilarious ... A joyous novelist at the peak of her formidable powers' DALJIT NAGRA, author of LOOK WE HAVE COMING TO DOVER!

Reviews for Love Marriage

A novel with the richness, and the throng and press and hum of life itself, LOVE MARRIAGE is bold, compassionate, big-hearted, pitch-perfectly written, and utterly unputdownable. Every single character lives and breathes on the page. Make time for all of them for they are going to take up residence in your mind and soul for a long, long time * Neel Mukherjee, Booker Prize shortlisted author of THE LIVES OF OTHERS * Through the construct of a marriage, Monica Ali imagines complex modern lives tip-toeing around and defying each other's sensitivities in a warm, affectionate and hilarious novel. Love Marriage is every bit as compelling, as charming as Brick Lane. A joyous novelist at the peak of her formidable powers writing fresh lives into our literary tradition * Daljit Nagra, author of LOOK WE HAVE COMING TO DOVER! *
