This novel is a delightfully original, tongue-in-cheek look at the obstacles women face in life; a parody of the misogynistic, post-colonial world that we live in.

‘An alternate feminist manifesto’ – Heidi Greco

saheban-advert9

‘This fantastically complex tale presents what could be construed as an alternate feminist manifesto, rallying not only against outdated rules and ‘the man’ but against government, the wealthy and more. The main character, SahebaN, is nearly as clever and feisty as her creator, Fauzia Rafique.’
