Eastern mystics warn that triangles are the dwelling places of djinns. What, then, might be the destructive power of a love triangle? 

Sibling rivalry, evolutionary science, theatre, film and even magic all have a part to play in Ambreen and Uzma Hameed's exuberant tale of a romantic triangle that also touches on questions of belonging and identity. Undying is huge fun. Its sitcom-style comedy and affectionate satire deepen into a mystery that explores what unites and divides us, in families and communities, and asks how art, science and religion try to make sense of

a violent and unjust world.

The main characters stay with you: the entwined yet intensely rivalrous siblings, the mesmerising outsider, and a range of Muslim relatives defying all stereotypes ... They take you on an audacious, at times bewildering, always enthralling journey.

YASMIN ​ALIBHAI-BROWN

Full of humour, passion and the kind of multi-layered portrayal of the British Muslim community that you don’t often find in fiction. It shouldn't be possible to pull off such ambitious political scope alongside laugh-out-loud comedy, but somehow the writers do and with a light touch. 

VIV GROSKOP

Comedienne, broadcaster and author

A novel of huge ambition and entirely original - by turns hilarious, beguiling, thought-provoking, and tinged with magic. I couldn't put it down.
