"Best thing I've read this year…"
Narinder is starting her married life in a small flat on a Sheffield backstreet. Her new husband, Randeep, has never shared her bed, and her family are unaware of her whereabouts. Avtar longs to study but must work to pay his crippling debts. Tochi has come to the UK illegally to seek work, after terrible things happened to his family in Bihar. This is the story of four young Indians, all battling to make their way and create a new life. It gives an insight into a hidden world, and is a moving story of love, faith, family and identity, filled with characters who will stay with you long after you close the book. This is the best thing I've read this year - has just been shortlisted for the Man Booker prize, and deserves to win it!
