'I am always asked the same question, "What's it like in Pakistan?" It's a question that is impossible to answer with a one liner.' Jemima Khan is both an insider and an outsider. British by birth, she married Imran Khan at the age of twenty one, moved to Lahore, converted to Islam, learnt Urdu and lived for five years with her husband and two sons in a traditional Pakistani household along with sixteen other family members. After leaving in 2004, she now returns and rediscovers the land she lived in for almost a decade. Travelling across the country from Lahore to Karachi, Jemima meets people as varied as human rights lawyers, prostitutes, famous actresses and politicians. Perceptive and witty, she shows us the real Pakistan through the eyes of the myriad of people who live there, a place full of contradictions; a place where 'prostitutes don burquas and girls with honour dress like wags'.
