The year of the runaways; Sunjeev Sahota
Publication year: 2016
Three young men live in a house in Sheffield, each in flight from India and in desperate search of a new life. Tochi, a former rickshaw driver, will say nothing about his past in Bihar and Avtar has a secret that binds him to protect the chaotic Randeep. Randeep, in turn, has a visa-wife in a flat on the other side of town: a clever, devout woman whose cupboards are full of her husband's clothes - in case the immigration men surprise her with a call. She is Narinder, and her story is the most surprising of them all.
London : Picador, 2016
A well written, well disguised love story.
