Broken Verses Synopsis

_______________ 'A richly woven novel … The voice that guides us around this world darts with wit and lightness in a way that is unique and often lovely' - Rana Dasgupta, Guardian 'The plot gallops along, ensuring a gripping read … thought-provoking' - Independent 'A highly accomplished novel … A multi-layered but shrewdly simple tale' - New Statesman, Books of the Year _______________ BY THE ACCLAIMED WINNER OF THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION Fourteen years ago Aasmaani's mother Samina, a blazing beauty and fearless activist, walked out of her house and was never seen again. Aasmaani refuses to believe she is dead and still dreams of her glorious return. Now grown up and living in Karachi, Aasmaani receives what could be the longed-for proof that her mother is still alive. As she comes closer to the truth she is also irresistibly drawn to Ed, her ally and sparring partner, and the only person who can understand the profound hurt - and the profound love - that drives her. _______________ 'An elegant, challenging novel about love, loss and deception … vibrant' - Daily Mail 'Sparkling prose and formidable wit' - Daily Telegraph
