About the Author

Monica Ali has been named by Granta as one of the twenty best young British novelists. She is the author of In the Kitchen, Alentejo Blue, and Brick Lane, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. She lives in London with her husband and two children.

Anna Fields (1965-2006), winner of more than a dozen Earphones Awards and the prestigious Audie Award in 2004, was one of the most respected narrators in the industry. Trained at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, she was also a director, producer, and technician at her own studio, Cedar House Audio.


A solid successor to Brick Lane...Ali proves that she isn't a one-hit wonder when it comes to writing.

-- "USA Today"

"The simultaneous sense of stasis and great change is Ali's forte, and her characters' perceptions are sharp."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Using luminous, heartfelt language, the award-winning Ali weaves a tapestry of human frailty...the brief, tantalizing glimpses of private heartbreak each character reveals are both touching and compelling...a study of collective despair and frustrated hopes."

-- "Library Journal"
