Stars celebrate at Meera Syal’s book launch

A galaxy of stars from across the entertainment spectrum gathered at the Union Club in Soho to celebrate the release of the long-awaited third novel by British Asian National Treasure Meera Syal.  Syal and husband Sanjeev Bhaskar were joined by the likes of Lenny Henry, Jo Brand, Maureen Lipman, Adrian Lester, Kabir Bedi, Anita Rani and host of others to toast ‘The House of Hidden Mothers’, an astonishing novel about surrogacy, ageing, motherhood and being British Asian.  The book, Syal’s first in more than 16 years, has received rave reviews for its poignant and extremely funny exploration of myriad issues close to Syal’s own heart.  Jo Brand described the book as “Dazzling, intense and gritty at times; sparkling and hilarious at others”.
