This review is from: If You Don't Know Me by Now: A Memoir of Love, Secrets and Lies in Wolverhampton (Hardcover)
Having been out with a guy from the same culture as Sathnam and being white I have suffered at the hands of an over bearing family that instantly disliked me and judged me as not good enough without even knowing me. I always thought that my boyfriend was weak as he didn't stand up to them and took it personally that he didn't want to be me with enough to make the commitment to force his family to accept us despite his protests that this simply wasn't the case and that I didn't understand asian family and community cultures/expectations, I always thought this was an excuse though! But having read Sathnam's memoir I've seen all this in a different light as so much of what I read resonated hugely with our situation, not only is this book one of the best written books I have ever read but it had me chuckling outloud and completely sympathising with him. This book really IS heart warming, light heartedly serious and we found it inspiring. I can't thank Sathnam enough.
