Desiring Cairo

by Louisa Young

Part of the The Angeline Gower Trilogy Series

Desiring Cairo Synopsis

The sparky, funny sequel to Louisa Young's acclaimed first novel of belly-dancing, motorbikes and single-parenthood. Angeline has a surprise waiting for her, and it's one that threatens everything she holds dear. Everything used to mean herself and her Harley Davidson; now it means her sister's baby, Lily, and a life that they have just got back on track. But these letters bring a threat that cannot be ignored, and send Angeline back to Cairo, where love, chaos and - maybe - redemption are lying in wait for her. Ever intrepid, Angeline is a heroine of the new guard in the second instalment of Louisa Young's deliciously funny and razor-sharp trilogy.

Desiring Cairo Press Reviews

`A romantic hymn to the struggle of being independent...It is the compulsive quality of this writing that gives Louisa Young's books such wide appeal.' The Times `Funny and scary...with a memorable David Lynch-style take on Shepherd's Bush...in writing honestly and unsentimentally, Young celebrates the unequivocal nature of parental love with verve and style.' Julie Myerson, Mail on Sunday `As well as being compelling and witty, Desiring Cairo is immensely touching, leaving haunting traces across the reader's heart and mind...Majestic.' Big Issue
