The Curry Mile by Zahid Hussain

The Curry Mile

Zahid Hussain

A funny, moving, unputdownable book. Soraya is a modern heroine, battling against all the odds - an unreasonable father, a repressed mother, a dysfunctional family, completely off-the-wall friends, and a cheating boyfriend. Not much going for her really, except her sheer, bloody-mindedness.

Extract

Ajmal drove like a madman along the Curry Mile. It was past midnight and the Kohinoor like the rest of his restaurants was still open, but he'd called it a night and left Shokat in charge. He was in a celebratory mood.
