The Latest from Nasser...
Nasser Hashmi is a
and a former regional
film critic of the year.
His north-west roots have
informed most of his early work like
Season of Sid and A Fistful of Dust but he has recently branched out to tackle more challenging, global issues like phone hacking (Wacko Hacko) and the Rushdie affair (In A Rushdie Winter)... find out more.
Rochdale-set novel All in Sarah Gee's Head was longlisted
for the 2017 prestigious Peggy-Chapman Andrews First
Novel award (Bridport Prize). It's a harrowing, unflinching
tale but hopefully rewards those who stick with it.
The 1989 book burning is explored In A Rushdie
Winter which was longlisted for the 2017 Bath Novel Prize
from more than 1,100 entries worlwide. Dionne McCulloch
called it 'the most accomplished longlist yet'.
Marlow FM's Book Club recommended Seventeen Gifts
for Frannie and Jess as one of their chosen novels last
Friday (May 12) and I was interviewed for the Mid Morning
