Summary

Joining us at Audible Studios is Ayisha Malik, a British author whose debut novel, Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged, released in 2015 and in 2019 was picked as the novel for Cityread London. Her newest book, This Green and Pleasant Land, published in June 2019.

The story of This Green and Pleasant Land focuses on Bilil and Mariam Hasham, who have lived in the sleepy, contented village of Babbel's End for years. But things change rapidly when Bilal's mother whispers her dying wish from her deathbed.

Bilal is given the task of building a mosque in the village. It is obvious from the start that other members of the village don't approve, and the division causes battle lines to be drawn.

We spoke to Ayisha Malik about new audiences discovering Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged, what it’s like to be a ghostwriter and the comedy of village life.
