FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BOY WITH THE TOPKNOT AND EMPIRELAND
 
When Arjan returns to the Black Country after his father's death, his family's corner shop represents everything he tried to leave behind. But his mother insists on keeping the business open, and Arjun finds himself being dragged back from London, and forced into big decisions about his own relationship. Yet Arjan's story isn't the first and it won't be the last: Surinder and Kamaljit, two sisters, a generation back in the family, also experienced their own share of betrayals and loyalties, loves and regrets.

"A fascinating reckoning with a history of empire"
(Guardian)
