What Fatima Did... 

by Atiha Sen Gupta 

Fatima Merchant is feisty and strong-willed. At 17, she drinks, smokes and parties. On the eve of her 18th birthday, without word or warning or explanation, she adopts the hijab. Suddenly, to her friends and family she is no longer the Fatima they thought they knew.

What Fatima Did... is a funny and thought-provoking exploration of attitudes to identity, freedom and multiculturalism in contemporary Britain.
