You People: Nikita Lalwani in conversation with Mary MountThursday 2 April 2020, 7 p.m. · 24 minutes
‘Enthralling as a thriller, yet also a beautiful human drama, and a serious enquiry into the possibility of goodness.’ – Tessa Hadley
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.
