The Gori’s Daughter is the story of Aisha, a young mixed race woman, daughter of a Kashmiri father and a Glasgow mother. The Gori herself was moved into the household by Abbas (Aisha’s father) as mistress alongside his Muslim wife. Aisha’s life is a constant struggle against the rejection and hostility her background generates in both Glasgow’s white and Asian communities. The book documents her fight to offer her own daughter a culture and tradition she can accept with pride. The tale is often harrowing but shows human resilience and is ultimately a triumph of the human spirit, a victory for decency over bigotry and discrimination.

The Gori’s Daughter is an uncompromising exploration of the realities rather than the myths of race relations within modern Scotland and is likely to have an explosive impact, challenging as it does cosy assumptions on both sides.
