Rather like a contemporary Barbara Pym [Malik] redraws the boundaries of what stories about British Muslims might look like. . . it touches our capacity for human sympathy and connection in important ways
Wise and warm-hearted
Feisty, funny and relatable, it's the feminist comedy you've been waiting for
A courageous, revealing, fiendishly funny and important book. Genuinely ground-breaking
I adored this. A gorgeous, funny, smart uplifting story about seeking unity during times of division. Wish I could prescribe it to the country
Praise for SOFIA KHAN IS NOT OBLIGED:
"A light-hearted book crammed with witty humour... It's an entertaining debut with laugh-out-loud moments - a contemporary love story you won't want to miss!"
"Fans of Bridget Jones certainly won't be disappointed, since Malik achieves the perfect balance of romance and humour"
"Move over Bridget Jones - there's a new heroine charting her romantic disasters- this time minus the Chardonnay... refreshing and funny"
"Best of the New Books... For fans of Bridget Jones's Diary"
"Must-read... Liven up your daily commute or boost your bedtime routine with [this] page-turner"
"Most refreshing of all, Sofia doesn't need to undergo some sort of wild identity crisis before she gets her happy ending... [a] sharp, funny but ultimately very normal portrayal of life as a British Muslim"
Part of "a new wave of female-focussed fiction... Bridget Jones-esque"
