'Thanks God, my bore-but-rich cousin Jonkers has been dumped by his wife - a low-class, slutty secretary.
My aunty is so happy you can't even imagine. Now she wants her darling son to marry again, and quickly.
But this time to a suitable girl from an old family.
Only problem is, she wants me to find her. But where to start? No one can accuse me of being antisocialist, but with all these bombs-shombs and fundos and fatwas, there aren't so many Get Togethers happening in Lahore these days. And, on top, my stuppid husband keeps lecturing me that I must let Jonkers choose his own bride.
He just doesn't seem to understand that good marriages are all about good baggrounds.
Aren't they?' Full of wit and wickedness and as clever as its heroine is clueless, Tender Hooks is an explosively funny romp through Pakistani high society - and the realities of living in a country that is falling apart day by day.
