Product description

Review

‘So beautifully written and so important, and so cleverly crafted, it can't be a debut. But it is’ Joanna Cannon

‘A Kuwaiti #MeToo novel of muffled suffering and a bid for freedom- absorbing, brave and compelling’ Leila Aboulela

‘Truthful and courageous, radical and lyrical. I loved it’ Hanan Al-Shaykh

‘Brilliant book about the pressures of being a 30 year old unmarried woman in Kuwait – the struggle for modernity amidst patriarchal tradition – and the cultural failure to acknowledge trauma. What a debut’ Pandora Sykes

‘Set in contemporary Kuwait, AlAmmar asks us to reimagine the lives of modern Muslims as they struggle to reconcile the freedom of choice with the customs of their faith’ BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking

‘[A] fascinating debut … nuanced and understanding’ Observer

‘One of those books you ration so it doesn’t end too soon, it’s beautifully written and unbelievably powerful. I loved it’ Katie Lowe, author of The Furies

‘A timely and deeply affecting debut with a voice that needs to be heard, at a time when it matters most’ Charlotte Philby, author of The Most Difficult Thing

‘The Pact We Made deals with one woman’s search for independence’ ELLE
