Gordon Macleod's ambitious debut novel tells the story of the three Qureshi siblings as they struggle to forge their identities within the racial kaleidoscope of east London. Their lives are entwined with a cast of characters from a tapestry of backgrounds and shifting landscapes. The novel addresses the tensions and meanings of cultural belonging through the themes of homelessness and immigration. Narrated by a series of personified emotions, the story is set against the backdrop of the 2012 Olympics, and considers the impact on the local population for those whose lives are touched, however fleetingly, by the impending Games.
