Best of Friends by Kamila Shamsie
Books are for collection at the London Gliterary Lunch only.
From the winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction 2018
Fourteen-year-old Maryam and Zahra have always been the best of friends, despite the different backgrounds. Full of hope for the future as they celebrate the return to democracy under Benazir Bhutto, they cannot predict the consequences of a snap decision at a party.
Three decades later, still the best of friends, unwelcome ghosts from their shared past return and both women find themselves driven to act in ways that will stretch and twist their bond beyond recognition.
Best of Friends is about Britain today, about power and how we use it and about what we owe to those who have loved us the longest.
