First edition, first print hardback of A GOLDEN AGE, by Tahmima Anam and published by John Murray (Publishers) / Hodder Headline, London, in 2007. Signed by Anam on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean red cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine), with minor wear to the illustrated dust jacket which is not price clipped (light rubbing to a couple of the corners and a tiny nick to the top corner of the spine). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

Tahmima Anam was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and grew up in Paris, Bangkok, and New York. She holds a Ph.D. in social anthropology from Harvard University. Her writing has been published in Granta, the New York Times, the Guardian, and the Financial Times. A Golden Age, her first novel, was the winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best First Book. She lives in London and Dhaka.

"As Rehana Haque awakes one March morning, she may be forgiven for feeling happy. Today she will throw a party for her son and daughter. In the garden of the house she has built, her roses are blooming; her children are almost grown up; and beyond their doorstep, the city is buzzing with excitement after recent elections. Change is in the air.

But none of the guests at Rehana’s party can foresee what will happen in the days and months that follow. For this is East Pakistan in 1971, a country on the brink of war. And this family’s life is about to change for ever.

Set against the backdrop of Bangladesh’s War of Independence, A Golden Age is a story of passion and revolution, of hope, faith and unexpected heroism. In the chaos of this era, everyone—from student protesters to the country’s leaders, from rickshaw-wallahs to the army’s soldiers—must make choices. And as she struggles to keep her family safe, Rehana will find herself faced with a heartbreaking dilemma."

A Golden Age was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and the Costa First Novel Prize. The follow up novel The Good Muslim was nominated for the 2011 Man Asian Literary Prize.

'An impressive debut...Rehana’s metamorphosis encapsulates her country’s tragedy and makes for an immersive, wrenching narrative.' — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
