He’s the perfect catch (according to his mother).

From Dr Amir Khan, How (Not) To Have an Arranged Marriage is a timely, heartfelt novel which looks at all aspects of modern arranged marriages.

'This is a complete delight from a born storyteller' – Lorraine Kelly

Yousef is the golden child to his strict Pakistani parents, overshadowing his younger sister, Rehana. As he finishes his medical degree in London, his life appears to be mapped out for him: become a doctor, marry a suitable girl of his parents’ choosing and, above all, make his family proud. Then Yousef meets Jess.

A fellow medical student, Jess presents a complication to the plan. Suddenly, Yousef finds himself torn between two worlds – keeping each a secret from the other.

Then, as graduation day looms, Yousef’s mother informs him that she’s started looking for his wife . . .

Modern love and traditional cultures collide in How (Not) To Have an Arranged Marriage, a big-hearted romance from full-time GP and author of The Doctor Will See You Now, Dr Amir Khan.
