The April edition of the book club (Weds 14 April) sees us welcome the wonderful writer, Laaleen Sukhera, who joins us to talk about her fictional debut AUSTENISTAN in which she co-wrote edited stories from fellow members of the Jane Austen Society of Pakistan. Inspired by Jane Austen and set in contemporary Pakistan, Austenistan is a collection of seven stories; romantic, uplifting, witty, and heartbreaking by turn, which pay homage to the world’s favourite author in their own uniquely local way.
Join Book Club host, and award-winning journalist Madlen Davies in conversation with Laleen.
