British Bake Off Winner Nadiya Hussain Publishes First Novel

By January 11, 2017 New Releases, News

No one had heard of Nadiya Hussain until she won the Great British Bake Off last year, and since then she’s been taken to the nation’s heart with her own television show, and now a debut novel!

The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters was published today and is available now, and follows the story of three sisters of Bangladeshi heritage who live in a small village in England. Writing novels is a far cry from baking but the novel sounds like an interesting reflection of modern British life and is likely to be a best seller.

It’s been reported that Nadiya Hussain has a deal for three novels so if you like this one then you can expect more from the author who has taken to the limelight like a duck to water!

The baker turned author was on BBC Radio 2 today talking about the novel and the things she uses for inspiration. Nadiya says she carries a notebook around with her and blames her father for the most comical lines in the book. She certainly comes across as funny and gregarious but marks The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters as drama rather than comedy.

The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters is available from Wednesday 11th January and given the author’s success since her Bake Off win last year we’ll be very surprised if it’s not a resounding success!
