Event Details

Join two of the country’s sharpest young writers as they explore their own perspectives of what it is to be different in contemporary Britain.

Chosen one of Waterstones’ Best Fiction Debuts of 2013, Marriage Material tells of three generations of a family through the prism of a Wolverhampton corner shop – itself a microcosm of the South Asian experience.  Humourous and insightful, it is a unique and urgent glimpse of modern Britain.

Sathnam Sanghera is an award-winning writer for The Times. His first book, The Boy with the Topknot: A Memoir of Love, Secrets and Lies in Wolverhampton, was shortlisted for the 2008 Costa Biography Award.  Damian Barr is a writer, playwright and creator/host of the Shoreditch House Literary Salon. His highly acclaimed Maggie and Me is a humorous and timely memoir of surviving Thatcher’s Britain.

Produced in partnership with the South Asian Literature Festival.
