Rave Reviews for OURS ARE THE STREETS

28th January 2011|New Authors

Described by the Times as “A moral work of real intelligence and power” Sunjeev Sahota’s debut novel, Ours Are The Streets, is receiving blanket review coverage. The author was the only novelist selected by the Observer in its feature on the six most exciting artistic debuts of 2011.

“Extraordinary. With unnerving control, Sahota casts us into the tormented mind of his narrator, Imtiaz, a second-generation immigrant who marries (and has a child with) an English woman before embracing extremism on a visit to Kashmir. Sahota avoids many of the clichés of radicalisation - he presents Imtiaz as spurred less by religious conviction than a desperate desire to belong - and the narrative contains many beautiful, well-honed images.” - Will Skidelsky, the Observer
