The Curry Mile

by Zahid Hussain
£7.95   paperback  Suitcase (2006)

The Curry Mile by Zahid Hussain
A novel about being yourself in a world of family feuds and betrayal.
 
Daddy's girl, Sorayah Butt has everything: the gorgeous live-in boy, the dream apartment, the enticing job offer. Her world is thrown upside down when her father turns up on her doorstep and discovers her with her dream boy in a state of undress. He disowns her.
 
'He is not even a Muslim!'
 
When the family business threatens to go belly up without her intervention, Sorayah is caught on the horns of a dilemma: should she come to the rescue or leave her dad to be ruined by the business melt-down?
 
Is it wrong to want to retain some control over your own life?
 
The Curry Mile is about being a free spirit and trying to stay that way. Set against the backdrop of the cut-throat restaurant trade, it depicts life for twenty-somethings as it has never been shown before. This is a deftly written novel that speaks volumes about the experiences of migrant communities in the UK today.
