Tahmima Anam is the author of the novel “A Golden Age” (2007). Tahmima Anam is a graduate of the creative writing MA at Royal Holloway College (overseen by Poet Laureate Andrew Motion). The novel is set in East Pakistan at the time of the Bangladesh liberation war. It’s a topic that Tahmima Anam would seem well qualified to deal with, as all her academic work looks to have focused on this period. She was recently awarded her PhD by the Social Anthropology Department at Harvard. A Golden Age has been longlisted for the 2007 Guardian First Book Award , and shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award.
