9780099558675: Marriage Material

Sathnam Sanghera's debut novel is a luminous exploration of the life of an immigrant family in the UK, layering the contemporary story of a young man caught between British and Punjabi culture, the history of his family, and the new life he's made for himself. In a fresh narrative voice that wryly observes, questions, and reflects, Sanghera confronts the complexities of tradition, culture, love, and family. Readers will find more laughter than sadness, smiling even when the Banga family's story seems hopeless. 

In an ordinary town in the West Midlands, Arjan Banga reluctantly becomes the new proprietor of the family convenience store after the sudden death of his father. Grimly reevaluating his life as he struggles to protect the store as well as escape it, Arjan gains a grudging appreciation of the family generations that came before him-of their courage and weakness, sacrifices, and follies. As Arjan begins to spend more time than he intended with the store, watching his London life and English fiancée slip away, he will have to explore the past in order to step into the future.

Review:

Praise for Marriage Material

"Sanghera's novel is singularly realist, filled with details of the lives of Sikhs from the late '60s to the riots of 2011. The divisions within the Sikh population are poignantly and comically captured in the protests against the Wolverhampton Transport Department's ban on Turbans..."
Los Angeles Review of Books

"Sanghera's precise, hilarious rendition of voices and cultural details is the signal pleasure of a novel rich in humor, history, and heart."
Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

“Sanghera reaches hearts and minds with an unforgettably companionable narrator.”
—Booklist

"A hugely enjoyable read, packed with plot twists and laugh out loud set pieces, but it is also tender and insightful."
The Sunday Express

"A satirical masterpiece...Sanghera is such an engaging and versatile writer that the pages fly by in a flurry of pathos, politics, and pandemonium."
Sunday Telegraph

"Moving and affecting...There is a really, really fine novelist here."
—Kamila Shamsie, Saturday Review, BBC Radio 4

"Marriage Material is a wonderfully engaging book, full of heart and wit. Its exploration of what it means to feel torn is rich and subtle. Its characters stay with you."
The Financial Times

"Smart, funny and melancholy, Sanghera's debut novel goes straight to the heart of family life."
—Marie Claire

Descripción Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is shortlisted for the costa first novel award and longlisted for the desmond elliott prize. To Arjan Banga, returning to the Black Country after the unexpected death of his father, his family s corner shop represents everything he has tried to leave behind - a lethargic pace of life, insular rituals and ways of thinking. But when his mother insists on keeping the shop open, he finds himself being dragged back, forced into big decisions about his imminent marriage back in London and uncovering the history of his broken family - the elopement and mixed-race marriage of his aunt Surinder, the betrayals and loyalties, loves and regrets that have played out in the shop over more than fifty years. Taking inspiration from Arnold Bennett s classic novel The Old Wives Tale, Marriage Material tells the story of three generations of a family through the prism of a Wolverhampton corner shop - itself a microcosm of the South Asian experience in the country: a symbol of independence and integration, but also of darker realities. This is an epic tale of family, love, and politics, spanning the second half of the twentieth century, and the start of the twenty-first. Told with humour, tenderness and insight, it manages to be both a unique and urgent survey of modern Britain by one of Britain s most promising young writers, and an ingenious reimagining of a classic work of fiction.
