Azime, a young Londoner from a Kurdish family, leads a prototypically intercultural life as she moves between the liberal Western world and the traditional Kurdish community of her neighbourhood. She fulfils her secret dream and becomes the first female Kurdish comedy star in a burqa, to great success on stage – but as a consequence things get dangerous. Anthony McCarten’s novel is an explosive intercultural comedy of manners and a tribute to humour that triumphs over hate and intolerance.
