Set in the late noughties, Season of Sid is a comic novel with a twist. It tells the story of Sid Karim, the first Asian football star in the Premier League, who is visited by his mentor Ibrahim 'Gerd' Mullah, and handed a strange gift: a hand-stitched football with a secret code.

Sid puts the gift into his bag and thinks nothing more of it - he's got more important things on his mind, like playing for his team, creating chances and scoring goals. But when the two men meet again, in a ghoulish, empty stadium, Mullah tells Sid that he is dying and he has one final wish: he wants Sid to marry his daughter.

But Sid thinks these arrangements are absurd and medieval. He's climbed to the top of the ladder of liberation and he's not coming down any time soon. But when he eventually meets Mullah's daughter, his feelings begin to change... Season of Sid will appeal to fans of comic fiction. Author Nasser is inspired by Kurt Vonnegut and filmmakers, most notably Werner Herzog, Krystof Keislowski and Lindsay Anderson.
