Only in London
As a flight from Dubai comes into London's Heathrow and hits turbulence, four people from different corners of the Arab world are thrown together- beautiful, lost Lamis, recently divorced from her wealthy Iraqi husband; Nicholas, an expert at Sotheby's on Islamic daggers; louche and noisy Amira, a Moroccan who lives off immoral earnings and the transvestite Samir, with a monkey hidden in a basket -- and from then on their lives are intimately entwined.
Only in London is a funny, tender and sexy novel that uncovers a unique world in the heart of a big city.
