From the publisher:

‘A moving, authentic, humane novel which raises fundamental questions about what it means to be kind in an unkind world’ Guardian ____________________________________________ The Pizzeria Vesuvio looks like any other Italian restaurant in London – with a few small differences. The chefs who make the pizza fiorentinas are Sri Lankan, and half the kitchen staff are illegal immigrants. At the centre is Tuli, the restaurant’s charismatic proprietor and resident Robin Hood, who promises to help anyone in need. Welsh nineteen-year-old Nia, haunted by her troubled past, is running from her family. Shan, having fled the Sri Lankan civil war, is desperate to find his. But when Tuli’s guidance leads them all into dangerous territory, and the extent of his mysterious operation unravels, each is faced with an impossible moral choice. In a world where the law is against you, how far would you be willing to lie for a chance to live? ____________________________________________ ‘Intelligent and heart-piercing – an exceptional novel about the Britain we live in, even if we choose not to see it’ Kamila Shamsie, author of Home Fire ‘Asks tough questions about the nature of goodness in an unfair society’ Sunday Telegraph BOOK OF THE WEEK ‘Lively, poetically written and above all compassionate’ Sunday Times ‘A female lead who isn’t defined by a romantic story arc? Yes please. Lalwani’s serious, ravishing way of writing about the secret life of Britain is just what we need’ Times
