By Ali, Monica
In Love Marriage, Yasmin and Joe, both doctors working in the same hospital, are about to get married. Joe is the son of a famous feminist writer and icon, Harriet Sangster, while Yasmin is the daughter of a south London GP. In the opening scenes the two families meet for the fir...st time. Love Marriage is a brilliant novel about who we are and how we love in today's Britain. An exploration of the psychology of relationships, it brings together flawed characters stitched together by (largely) good intentions into a rich tapestry, frayed by misunderstandings and secrets. What starts as a striking social comedy develops into a heart-breaking and gripping story of two cultures, two families and two people trying to understand one another. Praise for Monica Ali: 'A writer with a keen eye for physical and emotional detail, and a style, mixing the tart with the lyrical which pulls you fast into her chosen world' The Times 'Ali's assured writing and gentle humour are a constant delight' Daily MailRead more
