Jane Austen's Emma, transported to the outlandish social whirl of 21st-century Lahore.
 
Our plucky heroine's cousin, Jonkers, has been dumped by his low-class, slutty secretary wife, and our heroine has been charged with finding him a suitable replacement -- a rich, fair, beautiful, old-family type. Quickly. But, between you, me and the four walls, who wants to marry poor, plain Jonkers?
 
As our heroine social-climbs her way through weddings, GTs (get-togethers, of course) and ladies' lunches trying to find a suitable girl, she discovers to her dismay that her cousin has his own ideas about his perfect mate. And secretly, she may even agree.

About the Author:

MONI MOHSIN is the author of two books, the Indian bestseller, The Diary of a Social Butterfly, based on her hit column in Pakistan's Friday Times and a novel, The End of Innocence. Born in Pakistan, she lives in the UK.

Review:

"Moni Mohsin is one of the funniest and sharpist satirists writing anywhere in the world today -- she can make you laugh out loud even while she delivers hard-hitting critiques of Lahore high society and the state of Pakistani politics."
—Kamila Shamsie

"This is a wildly entertaining book, but, beware, it also bites."
—Neel Mukherjee
