'With Jane-Austen levels of romantic mis-understandings, mis-readings, over-thinking, leaping-to-conclusions and obstacles-to-overcome, this is a brilliant, insightful and richly comic Brit-Asian romance.' Indra Khanna. Independent Curator 'Randhawa's words are FRESH, FUNKY and FABULOUS. Her hot-headed heroine, Hari-jan had my heart pumping as she zig-zags through the difficulties of growing up Asian in a British world. Heart-breaking and hilarious all at once, Beauty and the Beast is an interesting look at identity and belonging. Atiha Sen Gupta, playwright & screenwriter (SKINS. What Fatima Did) 'Beauty and the Beast is a very enjoyable read. It had me literally laughing out loud. As a young British Asian I could really relate to the characters' lives, feelings and experiences. In places I felt as if I was reading about myself, my own family and friends.' Sarah Ismail. 'Amusing, unsettling, and unexpectantly powerful at times - a great insight to contemporary British Asian life.' Shirani Sabaratnam. Television Executive 'Problems? Confusions? Contradictions? I got them all and if you've got them, then FLAUNT them is my motto.' Meet Harjinder (aka Hari-jan): 'A' level student, supermarket worker and desperate journalist. Feisty and impulsive, Hari-jan can't refuse a dare and to make matters worse has fallen in love with the wrong boy. Her best friend Ghazala has taken to wearing the hijab and mentoring racists. Can Hari-jan battle through the hurdles and win her man? Can Ghazala work out how to do Good in her own way? A sparkling, coming-of-age novel about life, love and friendship.
