Full description for Desiring Cairo
The sparky, funny sequel to Louisa Young's acclaimed first novel of belly-dancing, motorbikes and single-parenthood. Angeline Gower, ex-bellydancer, ex-biker, single mother of a little girl who is not actually her child, is mired in problems again in this wonderful sequel. Her relationship with Harry, the lover turned cop, remains fraught, the lure of the glamorous but no good Eddie hasn't gone away. And there is yet another element complicating things know - the seductive and mysterious Sa'id. With Angeline older and a little wiser, Louisa Young weaves a tale that is richer, sexier and more moving than 'Baby Love', while remaining just as exciting. Shifting between Shepherd's Bush and Cairo, full of the contrasts between the West and the Middle East, 'Desiring Cairo' thrills and enthralls while at the same time making us think and feel deeply about the love between mother and child, man and woman, friend and friend. Louisa Young has skilfully written this so that it is equally enjoyable read on its own, or as part of the trilogy that starts with 'Baby Love' and ends with 'Tree of Pearls'.
