Waterstones Says

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Duggal writes about the devastation of vulnerable lives with all the hard-eyed clarity of William Trevor, and as much literary heart as Rohinton Mistry - should we fall behind deeply inhabits its world but wears its craft so lightly - it is beautifully observed, suffused with inner-city melancholy and shot through with the hope that can only come from random encounters, the small acts of generosity that help strangers to find affinity with each other even in the worst of times.' - Award winning author Preti Taneja

“Great characters tell this story”

I have just finished this book and really enjoyed the way the characters’ lives wove in and out of each other to tell a compelling story.

It was really a story of hopes being dashed for those who had also had to... More

“Sharply-written and full of compassion”

By coincidence I read this book immediately after 'Girl, Woman, Other' by Bernardine Evaristo. The two books bear comparison: both assemble a disparate cast of characters, loosely connected; both explore the... More
