Editorial Reviews

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

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Darryl R. Morris on August 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
This was a marginally interesting love story of a British woman who meets a Pakistani man while he is working as a journalist in London, who follows him to Karachi after she divorces her husband and his wife dies. The book begins with several short and interconnected tales, which I found more enjoyable that the narrative of the lovers. This was a quick and not unpleasant read, but not one I would strongly recommend,
