Hello! This week I spoke to the author and award-winning journalist Saima Mir. Saima has written the most incredible first novel, The Khan, which is out on the first of April. Buy it here: https://www.waterstones.com/book/the-khan/saima-mir/9780861541416
She has also written brilliantly about her life, past relationships, faith and family. She has three sons - three! Which is a feat of human endurance I can barely quantify.
I was thrilled to interview Saima all about maternal rage, why we are so scared of women talking about their anger and our own misconceptions about motherhood in our twenties.
