Salaam Brick Lane: A Year in the East End

by Tarquin Hall
£7.99   paperback  John Murray (2006)

Salaam Brick Lane: A Year in the East End by Tarquin Hall An Afghan poaches a goose from the local park for Christmas dinner, asylum seekers try to rescue an Albanian girl sold into prostitution, a Bangladeshi teenager battles her family to be allowed to go to Cambridge, and an elderly Jewish widow reveals her terrible secret about the son she disowned...
 
When the property market forces Tarquin Hall out of the leafy London suburb of his childhood and into a grimy attic on Brick Lane, he finds his life inextricably linked with those of his neighbours.
 
Salaam Brick Lane is a gritty book about modern life in immigrant Britain - a poetic memoir from the cross-cultural crucible of London's East End.

"A wonderful book... balanced, humane and life-affirming."
(Guardian)
