Transworld, 2004. Paperback. Pp: 496. Set in Tower Hamlets, London, this contemporary novel of the life of an immigrant girl from Bangladesh draws you into a highly affecting world of love, fate and cultural conflict. It is the debut of a writer of huge talent.Still in her teenage years, Nazneen finds herself in an arranged marriage with a disappointed man who is twenty years older than her. Away from the mud and heat of her Bangladeshi village, home is now a cramped flat in a high rise block in London's East End. Nazneen knows not a word of English, and is forced to depend on her husband. But unlike him she is practical and wise, and befriends a fellow Asian girl Razia, who helps her understand the strange ways of her adopted new British home. Nazneen keeps in touch with her sister Hasina back in the village. But the rebellious Hasina has kicked against cultural tradition and run off in a 'love marriage' with the man of her dreams. When he suddenly turns violent, she is forced into the degrading job of a garment girl in a cloth factory. Confined in her flat by tradition and family duty, Nazneen also sews furiously for a living, shut away with her buttons and linings until the radical Karim steps unexpectedly into her life. On a background of racial conflict and tension, they embark on a love affair that forces Nazneen finally to take control of her fate.Strikingly imagined, gracious and funny, this novel is at once epic and intimate. Exploring the role of Fate in our lives, those who accept it and those who defy it, it traces the extraordinary transformation of an Asian girl, from cautious and shy to bold and dignified woman.An immensely resonant drama from a brave and fierce new literary talent , a writer who is set to become a significant new name for years to come.

In the Kitchen
Simon and Schuster, 2009. Gekartonneerd met stofomslag. Pp: 436. Monica Ali, nominated for the Man Booker Prize, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and the National Book Critics Circle Award, has written a follow-up to Brick Lane that will further establish her as one of England's most compelling and original voices. Gabriel Lightfoot is an enterprising man from a northern England mill town, making good in London. As executive chef at the once-splendid Imperial Hotel, he is trying to run a tight kitchen. But his integrity, to say nothing of his sanity, is under constant challenge from the competing demands of an exuberant multinational staff, a gimlet-eyed hotel management, and business partners with whom he is secretly planning a move to a restaurant of his own. Despite the pressures, all his hard work looks set to pay off.Until a worker is found dead in the kitchen's basement. It is a small death, a lonely death - but it is enough to disturb the tenuous balance of Gabe's life.Elsewhere, Gabriel faces other complications. His father is dying of cancer, his girlfriend wants more from their relationship, and the restaurant manager appears to be running an illegal business under Gabe's nose.Enter Lena, an eerily attractive young woman with mysterious ties to the dead man. Under her spell, Gabe makes a decision, the consequences of which strip him naked and change the course of the life he knows - and the future he thought he wanted.Readers and reviewers have been stunned by the breadth of humanity in Monica Ali's fiction. She is compared to Dickens and called one of three British novelists who are "the voice of a generation" by Time magazine. In the Kitchen is utterly contemporary yet has all the drama and heartbreak of a great nineteenth-century novel. Ali is sheer pleasure to read, a truly magnificent writer. ISBN: 9781416571681.

MONICA ALI
Alentejo Blue
Black Swan 2007 Paperback, 304pp. "IAlentejo Blue /Iis the story of the Portuguese village of Mamarrosa told through the lives of those who live there and those who are passing through men and women, children and old people, locals, tourists and expatriates. For some, such as Teresa, a beautiful, dreamy village girl, it is a place from which to escape; for others the dysfunctional Potts family it is a way of running from trouble (but not eluding it). Vasco, a cafegrave; owner who has never recovered from the death of his American wife, clings to a notion that his years in America make him superior to the other villagers. One English tourist makes Mamarrosa the subject of her fantasy of a new life, while for her compatriots, a young engaged couple, Mamarrosa is where their dreams finally fall apart. At the book's opening an old man reflects on his long and troubled life in this beautiful and seemingly tranquil setting, and anticipates the return of Marco Afonso Rodrigues, the prodigal son of the village and a symbol of this now fast-changing world. The homecoming is the subject of continuing speculation, and when Marco Afonso Rodrigues does finally appear, villagers, tourists and expatriates are brought together and jealousies, passions and disappointments must inevitably collide. ", (ISBN: 9780552771160). Very Good.
