by Lainy Malkani - £9.99  HopeRoad (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781908446602 | ISBN 10: 1908446609

A fascinating web of honey-coloured threads linking Indian migrant workers, who first left the Sub-Continent more than a hundred and fifty years ago, and their descendants now living in contemporary Britain.
 
Sugar Sugar: Bitter-sweet Tales of Indian Migrant Workers is a contemporary collection of short stories based on facts which reveals a rich and culturally diverse history behind India’s migrant workers and one of the most abundant and controversial commodities in the world.
 
Inspired by historical documents between 1838 and 1917, and the living memories of the descendants of indentured workers, Sugar Sugar spans five continents, travelling through time uncovering inspiring tales of courage and resilience.
