Description - The Startup Wife by Tahmima Anam
Selected as a Best Book of 2021 by the Observer, Stylist, Cosmopolitan, Red and the Daily Mail
Halfway through her PhD and already dreaming of running her own lab, computer scientist Asha has her future all mapped out. Then a chance meeting and whirlwind romance with her old high-school crush, Cyrus, changes everything.
Dreaming big, together with their friend Jules they come up with a revolutionary idea: to build a social networking app that could bring meaning to millions of lives. While Asha creates an ingenious algorithm, Cyrus' charismatic appeal throws him into the spotlight.
When the app explodes into the next big thing, Asha should be happy, shouldn't she? But why does she feel invisible in the boardroom of her own company? Why are decisions being made without her? Gripping, witty and razor-sharp, The Startup Wife is a blistering novel about big ambitions, speaking out and standing up for what you believe in.
'Fresh, funny, brave, savage, smart - Tahmima Anam hits every note perfectly in this novel about our new reality and the age-old problems of men and women that no app can fix' - KAMILA SHAMSIE
'The Startup Wife is an extremely enjoyable, feminist rom-com - gloriously readable, irresistibly funny and smarter than you realise until you turn the final, triumphant page. I loved this novel' - GILLIAN ANDERSON
