The immigrant experience is powerfully explored in two unforgettable new novels. Monica Cantieni's The Encyclopaedia of Good Reasons, translated by Donal McLaughlin, tells the deeply moving story of a young girl's long wait for adoption into a Swiss family, and into a German-speaking community. Sunjeev Sahota's much-anticipated second novel, The Year of the Runaways, describes the dreams and struggles of a group of young Indian men searching for a new life in Sheffield.

Sunjeev Sahota was born in 1981 in Derbyshire and continues to live in the area. Ours are the Streets is his first novel.
