North West Members Book Club

All event fees are listed net of VAT.

Join Women in Property North West members at The Anthologist, Manchester for our next in person Book Club where we discuss the book of choice: Best of Friends by Kamila Shamsie – winner of the Women's Prize in Fiction 2022.

"Fourteen-year-old Maryam and Zahra have always been the best of friends, despite their different backgrounds. Maryam takes for granted that she will stay in Karachi and inherit the family business; while Zahra keeps her desires secret, and dreams of escaping abroad.

This year, 1988, anything seems possible for the girls; and for Pakistan, emerging from the darkness of dictatorship into a bright future under another young woman, Benazir Bhutto. But a snap decision at a party celebrating the return of democracy brings the girls' childhoods abruptly to an end. Its consequences will shape their futures in ways they cannot imagine.

Three decades later, in London, Zahra and Maryam are still best friends despite living very different lives. But when unwelcome ghosts from their shared past re-enter their world, both women find themselves driven to act in ways that will stretch and twist their bond beyond all recognition.

Best of Friends is a novel about Britain today, about power and how we use it, and about what we owe to those who've loved us the longest."

Come and share your thoughts about the book over a cuppa (or glass of wine) with fellow Members. Drinks not included and to be purchased separately by attendees.

All members are welcome - whether you've tried our book club before or just fancy giving it a go!
