Escaping meddling Punjabi family and first dates with both sets of parents present, Alia Arora is excited to reclaim her London-bred independence with a move to Dubai, the heart of the expat world.
But Indian parents rarely back down, and Alia finds that the pursuit of the idealised version of herself – effortless career and a banging social life – isn’t quite as easy as she’d hoped. From unappealing arranged-marriage suitors to managing accusations of having become a ‘coconut’, Alia navigates it all with her trademark grace, irreverent wit and colourful language.
Narrated in a series of hilariously funny and searingly honest blog posts, The Frustrated Women’s Club is a love letter to the Indian Millennial.
