She Reads Anticipated Read

NPR “deliciously readable… Unmarriageable manages to be both a fun, page-turning romp and a thought-provoking look at the class-obsessed strata of Pakistani society.”

Star Tribune “Kamal does in words what Gurinder Chadha did in film with Bride and Prejudice.”

People Magazine “This inventive retelling of Pride and Prejudice charms.”

Atlanta Journal Constitution “Kamal’s resplendent second novel embraces and builds upon its predecessor in such a fresh way that a new class of “P&P” lovers will likely be born”.

New York Post “a thoroughly charming retelling”.

New York Journal of Books “a witty delight that will leave you wishing for more”

Asian Image “A Must Read. This sumptuous book is refreshingly relatable to Asian women today.”

Austenprose “the Pride and Prejudice retelling of my dreams”.

Forbes “Kamal’s story seems to have all the ingredients that make Pride and Prejudice’s re-telling an exciting, dramatic and fun South Asian adaptation complete with big, fat desi weddings, modern Pakistani women, affluent bachelors.”
