Nikita Lalwani and Mary Mount: You People

Nikita Lalwani’s latest novel You People (Viking) centres on a London pizzeria where the chefs are Sri Lankan and many of the kitchen staff are illegal immigrants. Through a diverse set of characters Lalwani draws a vivid portrait of contemporary British life as it really is lived.

Although our in-store event was unfortunately cancelled due to the Bookshop closure, Lalwani discussed her novel for our podcast with her editor Mary Mount.
