Her dad has a ferocious temper, but lets off steam playing cricket for the York Shah Terriers. Her melodramatic mum's favourite pastime is spying on the neighbours and organising her children's marriages. With the extended Shah family - including Dilly's disgraced Aunt - nicknamed 'Auntie Climax' - all sharing one house, the scene is set for a cat fight. Against a backdrop of casual 1970s racism, tough schools and a colourful working class neighbourhood, Dilly mounts her one-girl campaign to be an individual. Throughout it all her little sister Egg is her best friend, but when she gets a boyfriend and their father finds out, all hell breaks loose and, once again, DiIly is the one to get the blame.

“A stunning and hugely entertaining read”
This has to be one of the best books I have ever read. Everything about this novel stands out, from the hilarious title, the bold cover and the amazing writing. I laughed, cried, felt hungry and then laughed some... More
I absolutely loved this book from start to finish and didn't want to put it down, I also didn't want it to end.
Dilly is a real inspiration.
I hope Almas Khan brings out another novel soon.
