Monica Ali, LOVE MARRIAGE: A Novel

Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books™️

Jul 3 2022 • 27 mins

"Writing is ninety-nine percent perspiration and one percent inspiration." Zibby is joined by bestselling novelist Monica Ali to discuss her first book in ten years, Love Marriage. Monica shares how this book initially started as two separate stories that she ultimately intertwined, as well as the amount of research she conducted to make the medical elements of this novel seem as realistic as possible. The two also talk about how this story is all about sex (albeit in a non-Fifty Shades of Grey way), why Monica has a lot of sympathy for the book's sometimes annoying mother-in-law, and what it has been like for Monica to write the TV adaption of this project.
