Product description


‘Written with deep human empathy and understanding’ Marie Claire

‘A delightful collection provoking laughter and melancholia.’ Mei Fong, author of One Child

‘An astute and gifted storyteller, Shahraz describes the immigrant experience in Britain with rare passion and verisimilitude’ Bapsi Sidwa, author of Crow Eaters

‘Travelling through places and times, but more importantly, through people’s lives – that’s what makes these wonderful stories with their mix of sadness, longing, and nostalgia so memorable.’ Eka Kurniawan, author of Man Tiger

‘Like Buchi Emecheta, Shahraz is passionate about the lives and plight of women and migrants. Like Elif Shafak, she is effortlessly cosmopolitan and has a sharp ear for the voices of the street. Read this sparkling collection if you are interested in migration, in intergenerational tensions.’ Claire Chambers, University of York

‘These tautly paced, cross-cultural and all too human stories are told with deep empathy.’ Namita Gokale, author, and founder of Jaipur Literature Festival

‘A very bold and hard-hitting collection, truly memorable.’ Lynne Pearce, Lancaster University

‘This impressive new collection from Qaisra Shahraz, spanning several continents and centuries, puts the spotlight on the human condition.’ Emma Clayton, Bradford Telegraph & Argus
