    TWO CULTURES. TWO FAMILIES. TWO PEOPLE.

    The new novel from the bestselling, Booker Prize-shortlisted author of BRICK LANE
    _____________________________________

    'Exquisitely written with big-heartedness, intelligence and passion' RUTH JONES

    'Funny, warm, powerful' DIANA EVANS

    'Big-hearted, pitch-perfectly written, and utterly unputdownable' NEEL MUKHERJEE

    Yasmin Ghorami has a lot to be grateful for: a loving family, a fledgling career in medicine, and a charming, handsome fiancee, fellow doctor Joe Sangster.

    But as the wedding day draws closer and Yasmin's parents get to know Joe's firebrand feminist mother, both families must confront the unravelling of long-held secrets, lies and betrayals.

    As Yasmin dismantles her own assumptions about the people she holds most dear, she's also forced to ask herself what she really wants in a relationship and what a 'love marriage' actually means.

    Love Marriage is a story about who we are and how we love in today's Britain - with all the complications and contradictions of life, desire, marriage and family. What starts as a captivating social comedy develops into a heart-breaking and gripping story of two cultures, two families and two people trying to understand one another.

    'Ali's wit and insight illuminate the complications of modern love in Britain today. A joy' HARPER'S BAZAAR

    'Lit from end to end with storytelling brilliance' ANDREW O'HAGAN

    'No one captures the modern family like Monica Ali. Love Marriage is full of surprises and unexpected twists, with an ending that will take your breath away' TAHMIMA ANAM

    'A truly astonishing piece of writing - exquisite storytelling, featuring the most human portrayal of doctors I've ever read. I defy you to put this book down' ADAM KAY

    'Every bit as compelling, as charming as Brick Lane. A joyous novelist at the peak of her formidable powers
    writing fresh lives into our literary tradition' DALJIT NAGRA

    A gloriously vibrant and tender novel packed with wit, intelligence and wisdom. Her two junior
    doctor protagonists are superbly drawn - flawed, courageous, flailing, human. Just brilliant' RACHEL CLARKE
