Synopsis

An Observer Best Book of 2020



'A story of quiet striving and determination, of love and friendship' Guardian



It is New Year's Eve, 1960. Hashim has left behind his homeland and his bride, Munira, to seek his fortune in England. His cousin and only friend, Rofikul, introduces Hashim to life in Manchester - including Rofikul's girlfriend, Helen. When Munira arrives, the group must learn what it is to be a family.



Over the next twenty years, they make their way in the new country - putting down roots and building a home. But when war breaks out in East Pakistan, the struggle for liberation and the emergence of Bangladesh raises questions about identity, belonging and loyalty.



Hashim & Family is a story of family ties, of migration and of a connection to home, and is the debut of an extraordinary new talent.
