May 2024 | Western Lane by Chetna Maroo

Novella – Sports – Coming of age

Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2023. The International Bestseller.
Longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award 2023.

A beautiful and moving novel about grief, sisterhood, squash and a teenage girl’s struggle to transcend herself.

‘With this gorgeous debut, Maroo blows most of the competition off the court.’ – The Times

Eleven-year-old Gopi has been playing squash since she was old enough to hold a racket. When her mother dies, her father enlists her in a quietly brutal training regimen, and the game becomes her world. Slowly, she grows apart from her sisters. Her life is reduced to the sport, guided by its rhythms: the serve, the volley, the drive, the shot and its echo.
