Description: Our heroine's cousin, Jonkers, has been dumped by his low-class, slutty secretary, and our heroine has been charged with finding him a new wife - a rich, fair, beautiful, old- family type. Quickly. But who wants to marry poor, plain, die-vorced Jonkers? As our heroine schemes her way through shaadis, GTs (Get Togethers, of course) and ladies' lunches trying to find a suitable girl from the right bagground, she discovers to her dismay that her hapless cousin has his own ideas about his perfect mate. And secretly she may even agree a Full of wit and wickedness, Tender Hooks is a delightful romp through Pakistani high society from an author who is already a massive bestseller in India. Even as it makes you cry with laughter, it will make you wince at the unbearable contrast between our heroine's glitteringly shallow life and the country that is falling apart around her and sigh with relief at the beautifully simple ending note of hope.
