Join us at the Owl to meet Nikesh Shukla, novelist and editor of The Good Immigrant, who will be talking about his latest novel now out in paperback.
Neha has just been diagnosed with the same terminal cancer that killed her mother. Was this her destiny? She codes a computer program to find out, one that intricately maps out her entire life and the lives of those closest to her: her dad, who left Kenya for windblown northern England; her brother, a struggling comedian whose star is finally beginning to rise; her grandmother, who lost the man she loved to racist violence. By understanding the past, Neha hopes to come to terms with her present – and reckon with her family’s and her country’s future.
