The Latest from Nasser...

The Author

Nasser Hashmi is a

novelist, sub-editor

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

Matters programme. ...find out more.
