The year of the runaways by Sunjeev Sahota

It’s hard to read this book about illegal Indian immigrants in Britain as a fiction book. It reads more like an episode of Four Corners or a Channel 4 docco. Ultimately though it is a thoroughly depressing and sad book, but expertly written. Interesting look into how immigrants get by (well just) in England and also especially Sikh culture and beliefs as well. I certainly never knew that Sikhs had a caste system. 81/100
