From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

East is East and West is West.

Fresh from London, Christine and Donald Manley have come to the alien swelter of Karachi: Christine to conceive a child, Donald to sell the Pill for a pharmaceutical company. Among the ex-pats already there is straight-talking Duke Hanson, whose all-American values cannot prevent him falling, then sinking, helplessly in love with a sophisticated Pakistani girl. In the ensuing tangle of Anglo-American-Oriental relations, the strangest things for those who have come out East are revealed in the very people with whom they arrived.

Review:

"Wincingly funny…a tragicomedy of manners and errors. An ambitious book showing Asia through British and American eyes – compassionate, but never sloppy, it notes the flaws and frailties of East and West without mockery" ( Daily Mail)

"Entertaining, subtle and intelligent" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Thank God for Deborah Moggach" ( Independent)

"No neater entertainment has emerged from the debris of our past on the sub-continent" ( Guardian)

"A piece of technical wizardry" ( Daily Telegraph)
