This book is about two unlikely friends. One born in 1970s Britain to Indian immigrant parents, the other arrived from Nazi Germany in 1939, fleeing persecution. This is a story of migration, racism, family, belonging, grief and resilience.
It is about the state we’re in now and the ways in which we carry our pasts into our futures.
