Unmarriageable

Author: 
Soniah Kamal
Calling all Jane Austen Fans! The new novel Unmarriageable by Soniah Kamal is a lively retelling of Pride and Prejudice, set in modern day Pakistan. Alys Binat and her older sister, Jena, are schoolteachers living in genteel poverty with their ineffectual father, overbearing mother, and three younger sisters. It is their mother’s soul desire in life to see her daughters well married, especially the eldest, who she believes  have crossed into old maid territory. When two wealthy ,eligible bachelors and their entourage arrive in their small town, the plot is set into action.
While the storyline of Unmarriageable very closely follows that of the beloved classic,  Alys’s strong identity as a feminist (in a patriarchal society) and the exotic backdrop of Pakistan make this most recent retelling fresh and fun.
