Beschreibung

** The New York Times bestseller **

'To be taken hostage by Fatima Mirza's heartrending and timely story is a gutting pleasure... She captures your mind and heart with an urgency that defies you to stop reading. I guarantee you will be different when you close the book' Sarah Jessica Parker

'I loved this book' Anne Tyler

'The depth of the storytelling and the beauty of the language makes this debut something to treasure' John Boyne

An Indian-Muslim family is preparing for their eldest daughter's wedding. But as Hadia's marriage - one chosen of love, not tradition - gathers the family back together, there is only one thing on their minds: can Amar, the estranged younger brother of the bride, be trusted to behave himself after three years away?

A Place for Us tells the story of one family and all family life: of coming to terms with the choices we make, of reconciingly past and present and of how the smallest decisions can lead to the deepest betrayals.

"Telling the story via multiple perspectives, the author paints an incredibly textured and compassionate portrait of the characters’ lives. Their love for one another is undeniable, yet their inability to communicate it is devastating. As they collectively and individually struggle with the expectations of their heritage as well as contemporary life, A Place For Us is a timeless, yet also timely, family epic"

Fatima Farheen Mirza was born in California in 1991 and raised there. Her parents are of Indian descent; her mother grew up in Birmingham, her father in Hyderabad. She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, where she was a Teaching-Writing Fellow. A PLACE FOR US is her first novel.

After reading the last word I had to regroup my thoughts, my emotions, everything. And the characters haunted me for a long time which, for me, is always the sign of a good book. But it is so much more. SO MUCH more. It would be easy to put it in the box entitled "immigrants in new culture and all the things that can go wrong". ... After reading the last word I had to regroup my thoughts, my emotions, everything. And the characters haunted me for a long time which, for me, is always the sign of a good book. But it is so much more. SO MUCH more. It would be easy to put it in the box entitled "immigrants in new culture and all the things that can go wrong". And yes, this is one of the many aspects which surely adds complexity to this densely woven narrative. After some weeks passing and having gained some perspective - this book really pulls you in deep! - isn't it about love, respect, expectations (met or not) and above all transparency of feeling and communication? So many lost opportunities, so many misunderstandings, so much anguish all because of a lack of honest dialogue. When we finally hear the father's voice I was sobbing. Don't wait to say what needs to be said. Speak with your heart and from the heart and take it from there. My No. 1 book in 2019.
