Synopsis:

The Bitter Orange Tree tells the story of Omani student Zuhurat a British university as she reflects on her relationship with her grandmother, who passed away just after Zuhurleft the country.Bint Amir is not, we learn, related to Zuhurby blood –but by an emotional bond far stronger; as the historical narrative of the grandmother’s challenged circumstances unfurls, so too does the story of Zuhur’slonely and unfulfilled present, one narrative segueing into another as social status, wealth, desire and female agency are explored in a literary tour de force.
