Pakistani actress, model and now writer, Mira Sethi’s debut novel, Are You Enjoying? has been featured in 2021’s most anticipated books which is a list compiled by Refinery29 and Vogue Magazine.
Chloe Schama, the senior editor at Vogue, described Sethi’s masterpiece as “a powerful book with a light touch, marking the arrival of an assured storyteller.”
Kristin Iversen, deputy editor at Vogue described Are You Enjoying? as: “Bracing and sharp… It’s a pure joy to read this book”.
Mira Sethi expressed her gratitude in a recent tweet.
Mira Sethi had been hinting at her debut novel since a while on her social media, much to the excitement of her fans and followers.
Are You Enjoying? is an exhilarating debut by a young writer from Pakistan: provocative, funny, disarmingly original stories that upend traditional notions of identity and family, and peer into the vulnerable workings of the human heart.
From the high-stakes worlds of television and politics to the intimate corridors of home—including the bedroom—these wryly observed, deeply revealing stories look at life in Pakistan with humour, compassion, psychological acuity, and emotional immediacy. Childhood best friends agree to marry in order to keep their sexuality a secret. A young woman with an anxiety disorder discovers the numbing pleasures of an illicit love affair. A radicalized student’s preparations for his sister’s wedding involve beating up the groom. An actress is forced to grow up fast on the set of her first major tv show, where the real intrigue takes place off-screen. Every story bears witness to the all-too-universal desire to be loved, and what happens when this longing gets pushed to its limits.
Are You Enjoying? is a free-spirited, confident, indelible introduction to a galvanizing new talent.
“Most of the characters are young, but I’ve also included two short stories that revolve around a female politician. I wonder where I got the inspiration for that,” said Mira Sethi when talking about her book.
Are You Enjoying? will be available in Pakistan in May 2021.
