Brick Lane

Brick Lane is an epic yet intimate novel set in the Asian community in London’s East End. Still a teenager, Nazneen finds herself in an arranged marriage with a disappointed man twenty years her senior. Away from the mud, heat and beauty of her Bangladeshi village, home is now a cramped flat in a high-rise block.

Strikingly imagined, gracious, and full of warm humour, Brick Lane explores the role of fate in our lives – those who accept it, those who defy it – and traces the extraordinary transformation of a cautious and shy Asian girl to a bold and dignified woman.
