Sunjeev Sahota's Ours are the Streets is a poignant and powerful story of political radicalization.
When Imtiaz Raina leaves England for the first time, to bury his father on his family's land near Lahore, he exchanges his uncertain life in Sheffield for a road that leads to the mountains of Kashmir and Afghanistan.
Once back in Yorkshire, he writes through the night to his young wife Becka and baby daughter Noor, and tries to explain, in a story full of affection and yearning, what has happened to him - and why he has a devastating new sense of home.
Sunjeev Sahota was born in 1981 in Derbyshire and continues to live in the area. Ours are the Streets was his first novel and his second, The Year of the Runaways, was shortlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize and was awarded a European Union Prize for Literature in 2017.
