Bells / Chaos

Yasmin Khan, Azma Dar

PaperBack (23 Mar 2005)

Bells takes us into the seedy world of Mujra (courtesan) clubs, a centuries-old tradition in Pakistan which is now growing in Britain. A butcher's shop by day and a brothel by night, Bells has all the sparkle of Lollywood (the Pakistani film industry) but the glitz and glamour is tarnished by the pain and degradation of secret lives.

In Chaos, Mr Rizvi's ambitions to become a local councillor are thrown into turmoil as his family reveals shocking secrets and world events spiral out of control. Chaos is a dark, frantic comedy about the collapse of understanding on a personal and political level and the disastrous consequences which follow. A glimpse of a world in desperate need of tolerance and love, a world on the brink of madness.
