內容簡介

「被米爾扎令人心碎又適時的故事所俘虜,是一件極其重要的享受。」─莎拉‧潔西卡‧帕克,美國知名女演員

哈蒂亞馬上就要結婚了,家人因此聚在一起籌備婚禮、享受各自的陪伴,哈蒂亞的父母一方面開心,一方面卻不無掙扎,因為哈蒂亞結婚的對象是她真正相愛的人,並非按照穆斯林傳統禮節而選擇的伴侶。

另一個讓人頭痛的是久未現身的阿瑪,阿瑪是哈蒂亞的弟弟,幾年前因為和當地望族之女來往甚密,不合期盼的關係讓阿瑪決定離開家,在婚禮中,兩人的父母都在擔心阿瑪是否可以謹慎行事,不要鬧出什麼問題。

這是一個關於家庭傳統和現代文化牴觸、交融下產生的故事,它訴說著這個家庭的掙扎,也反映了所有家庭必經的磨合。

這個精采的故事是出自二十六歲的年輕作家法蒂瑪‧米爾扎之手,這本書是她的出道作。相當喜愛本書的美國女演員莎拉‧潔西卡‧帕克和美國出版社Hogarth合作了一個新的品牌SJP for Hogarth,由帕克擔任編輯總監,這本書也是這個品牌的第一本書。

“You’ll fall for Fatima Farheen Mirza’s gorgeous story of an Indian family and their estranged brother, all reunited at a wedding. Mirza’s writing is like poetry as she examines just how far the bonds of family can bend.” — ELISABETH EGAN, Glamour.com

The first novel from Sarah Jessica Parker’s new imprint, SJP for Hogarth, A Place for Us is a deeply moving and resonant story of love, identity, and belonging

As an Indian wedding gathers a family back together, parents Rafiq and Layla must reckon with the choices their children have made. There is Hadia: their headstrong, eldest daughter, whose marriage is a match of love and not tradition. Huda, the middle child, determined to follow in her sister’s footsteps. And lastly, their estranged son, Amar, who returns to the family fold for the first time in three years to take his place as brother of the bride. What secrets and betrayals have caused this close-knit family to fracture? Can Amar find his way back to the people who know and love him best?

A Place for Us takes us back to the beginning of this family’s life: from the bonds that bring them together, to the differences that pull them apart. All the joy and struggle of family life is here, from Rafiq and Layla’s own arrival in America from India, to the years in which their children—each in their own way—tread between two cultures, seeking to find their place in the world, as well as a path home.

A Place for Us is a book for our times: an astonishingly tender-hearted novel of identity and belonging, and a resonant portrait of what it means to be an American family today. It announces Fatima Farheen Mirza as a major new literary talent.
