should we fall behind (Paperback)Sharon Duggal (author)
A measured and deeply moving novel about love and displacement, Should We Fall Behind reflects the experience of the ‘invisible’ among us and what it means to belong in a world where you don’t have a home.
A BBC 2 Between The Covers Book Club Choice
Jimmy Noone walks from one side of a sprawling city to the other, looking for Betwa, a friend he found and lost on the bustling city streets. Jimmy becomes the catalyst for lost lives colliding, exposing stories of tenderness, devotion, displacement and tragedy, and the subtle threads of commonality which intersect them all, making the invisible, visible again.
