Wonderful way with words


Fans of Shubnum Khan flocked to Exclusive Books at The Pavilion to rub shoulders with the author of international bestselling part-memoir, part-travelogue How I Accidentally Became A Global Stock Photo during the recent launch of her much-anticipated new book … The Lost Love of Akbar Manzil. The launch, which played a significant role in inaugurating the new book store, was attended by fans, journos and the who’s who of the book world.

The Lost Love of Akbar Manzil, published by Pan Macmillan, is a haunting love story and a mystery, all intertwined beautifully into one young girl’s search for belonging. It’s available at Exclusive Books stores and online for R350.
