Billed as the Muslim Bridget Jones, Ayisha Malik's Sofia Khan is Not Obliged is Cityread Festival's 2019 choice to be London's collective page-turner throughout May. A hilarious romantic comedy, it follows its protagonist into 'the weird and wonderful world of Muslim dating', exploring British Muslim identity along the way. Billed as the Black Bridget Jones, Candice Carty-Williams Queenie is 2019's most hotly anticipated debut novel. A darkly comic and unflinchingly raw depiction of a young woman trying to navigate her way in the world, Queenie is about identity, independence and carving your own path. In conversation with Helen Lederer, both authors discuss multicultural identity, female experience, giving voice to characters rarely seen in literature and why we keep on coming back to Bridget Jones
