Warm and moving . . .Playing Games thoughtfully and elegantly considers what it means to be a sister, a mother and a writer' Chloe Ashby,

A riveting and evocative tale of two sisters navigating love, loss and desires' Zeba Talkhani


The remarkable debut novel from critically acclaimed writer Huma Qureshi: a poignant story of art and sisterhood, family, marriage and betrayalHana has a perfect job, a perfect home, a perfect marriage. It is her younger sister Mira who is a mess. But Hana wants children and her husband is hesitating, and perhaps her control is slipping.

Mira dreams of a creative life but she's stuck working at a local cafe. She hates her flatmate and Hana's dismissal of her writing but she can't find the right inspiration. One night, a fight between Hana and her husband sparks something in Mira: the words ring in her head and she starts typing.

But what can you borrow from your sister? And what can be forgiven?
