“A lovely, strange and very moving novel. The colours and shape develop as you read while the couple’s mutual understanding moves forward and upward over the years like two branches of blossom meeting at the top of the tree.”—Ruth Padel

Usman and Lydia meet in postwar London and fall in love. But as the years flit by, Usman feels a growing distance between them. When he realizes that he hasn’t noticed the buds of the gulmohar tree unfurl, he understands that he has lost sight of his love for his wife.

Aamer Hussein was born in Karachi in 1955 and moved to London in his teens. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

Review:

'A lovely, strange and very moving novel. The colours and shape develop as you read while the couple's mutual understanding moves forward and upward over the years like two branches of blossom meeting at the top of the tree.' Ruth Padel 'In his splendid, dreamy Another Gulmohar Tree, Hussein gives us an indelible sense of two worlds - Karachi and London - in miniature, and the strong parable of a love story that endures over a lifetime.' Joseph Olshan 'Taut yet lush - like the flame-bright flowers of the gulmohar tree itself. At its heart it is a story of love, into which Aamer Hussein weaves all his remarkable skills of storytelling.' Kamila Shamsie 'We are lucky to have Hussein among us, telling us stories as few can, with his particular mixture of deep love, understanding, and sadness.' Amit Chaudhuri
