Beschreibung

A Place for Us catches an Indian Muslim family as they prepare 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, but all family life is here. Rafiq and Layla must come to terms with the choices their children have made, while Hadia, Huda and Amar must reconcile their present culture with their parents’ world, treading a path between old and new. And they must all learn how the smallest decisions can lead to the deepest betrayals.
This is a novel for our times: a deeply moving examination of love, identity and belonging that turns our preconceptions over one by one. It announces Fatima Farheen Mirza as a major new literary talent.

FATIMA FARHEEN MIRZA was born in 1991 and raised in California. She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop and a recipient of the Michener-Copernicus Fellowship.

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.
