Zahid Hussain


A jaded Curry King finds his kingdom crumbling as his enemies conspire. His feisty daughter might possibly save him but instead becomes his arch-rival. Old traditions confront new against a backdrop of cut throat business dealings. The Curry Mile is King Lear to a Bhangra beat. A beguiling tale by a stunning new talent.


'Squabbling families with overbearing fathers, neighbourhood business feuds, charlatan mystics, music and mayhem - all human life is there. Suprisingly fresh and brilliant debut.'
- Ziauddin Sardar, New Statesman review - Books of The Year 2007

It`s revealing and quirky. chick flick cum chappati thriller - Shamshad Khan

"The Curry Mile reminded me of Nobel Laureate Naguib Mahfouz`s Cairo Trilogy: family feuds, infuriating fathers and a strong sense of place. Manchester: along the roads through the rain to the heart of the city."
