BookBar BookClub: The Centre with Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi


Sign up, receive your book in advance of the book club with plenty of time to read it, send in the questions and discussion points you'd like us to talk about, and join a vitual interview with the author, in which we'll discuss the book.


July's BookBar BookClub author is writer Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi, discussing herdebut novel, The Centre.


Anisa Ellahi longs to become a translator of 'great works of literature', but right now she is stuck in her London flat writing subtitles for Bollywood films. Then she is told about the Centre, an elite, invite-only programme that guarantees complete fluency in any language in just ten days.

Seduced by all that it could make possible, Anisa enrols. But the Centre's services come at a disturbing hidden cost. Still - it's worth it, right? After all, success comes at a price .

By turns dark, funny and surreal, The Centre by Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi takes the reader on a journey through Karachi, London and New Delhi.


Read a paperback copy of The Centre and and join us for a virtual interview with the author, Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi on Monday 29th July 2024 at 7pm.
