You may have noticed the rise in popularity of compelling novels written across dual timelines. We say: the more the merrier! This week we’re spotlighting one such novel, Edgware Road. It explores the story of Khalid, an immigrant father and gambler who goes missing in 1981. In 2003, his daughter Alia, now a young academic at Oxford, is on a mission to discover who her father really was. A family mystery, a daughter’s journey, and the exploration of what it means to be an immigrant in London are all explored in this page-turning novel by Yasmin Cordery Khan.
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
