Synopsis

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a student visa must be in want of an Australian wife.Twenty-eight-year old Esma has a masters in human resource management, never orders just a salad, is well-travelled, has excellent taste in music, watches the ABC news, has the Guardian saved as an app on her iPhone, knows all the two-letter words in Scrabble and can tell the difference between a Ford and a Holden. Armed with a check-list, she's on the hunt for Mr Right, who must be a Muslim.Tired of failed matchmaking, online dating sites and people calling her 'old fashioned', Esma forms a 'No Sex in the City' club with her friends Lisa, Ruby and Nirvana.Esma's quest for The One was never going to be easy but when family, friends and meddling employers are thrown into the equation, her path to true love suddenly takes a great big detour.With humour, intelligence and insight, the hilarious first adult novel from the award-winning author of the young adult smash Does My Head Look Big in This? proves that there’s more than one way to find Mr Right.
