Read full description of the books:
The camera never lies – or does it?
In her brilliantly observed debut novel Shelley Harris begins her story with a photograph that has been taken during an English suburban street party to celebrate the 1977 Jubilee. That picture goes on to be an iconic image, and one syndicated around the world, in which Satish, an immigrant Asian boy is seen sitting amongst his white neighbourhood friends.
It is a powerful emblem of hope, of tolerance and racial harmony. But what happened just before that event – and its long lasting repercussions – is described in a slow-building caldron of tension as less palatable scenes simmer under the surface, the past and present bubbling up as many uncomfortable truths are revealed – of an England then, and an England now – and how attitudes may, or may not, have moved on.
