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.
Lalwani will be in conversation about her work with writer and teacher Tessa Hadley, who has described You People as being ‘Enthralling as a thriller, yet also a beautiful human drama, and a serious enquiry into the possibility of goodness.’
