Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0330488546, Paperback)A hilarious and provocative story of love, menus and Islam To spice up the tedium of her work on a supermarket checkout, 20-year-old Tracy Pringle lets her imagination run riot. As she hands the change to Princess Leia or Omar Shariff, her life seems quite exotic. But far greater excitement is in store. Sacked for her compulsive daydreaming, she finds a new job as a waitress at the Taste of Persia - despite the reservations of the restaurant's proprietor, Samaan 'Sam' Sahar. This new world surpasses even Tracy's well-stocked imagination, and she soon finds herself falling headlong into dinner plates, Islam, and a rather tricky domestic arrangement. But as word of this English harem spreads, so too does prejudice and fear.

To spice up the boredom of working on a supermarket checkout and living in a crumbling tower block, Tracy imagines her dreary customers are the great and famous. She's not surprised when she's sacked, but what she isn't prepared for is her new job as a waitress at the Taste of Persia. Stepping into this world, she surpasses even her own imagination, falling under the spell of an unlikely suitor, Saaman Sahar, who has two wives already.
