Sunjeev Sahota's Ours are the Streets is a poignant and powerful story of political radicalization.

When Imtiaz Raina leaves England for the first time, to bury his father on his family's land near Lahore, he exchanges his uncertain life in Sheffield for a road that leads to the mountains of Kashmir and Afghanistan.

Once back in Yorkshire, he writes through the night to his young wife Becka and baby daughter Noor, and tries to explain, in a story full of affection and yearning, what has happened to him - and why he has a devastating new sense of home.

“A compelling Story”

How does someone think and feel when they believe they are an outsider in our society? Sahota's tale is of a radicalised Muslim, telling his story in extended note form. A very thoughtful novel.

For such a potentially difficult topic, this debut novel was easy to read and moved along at a good pace.

It was thought-provoking without being too heavy. I felt the voice was a genuine one, maybe helped by the fact... More
