Reviews

'Beautiful and moving ... a book to make you believe that we are all more alike than we know' Tony Parsons 'While the book is about many things - the impact of multi-culturalism, a coming-of-age story and a Nick Hornby-style documentation of musical obsession - it is Manzoor's relationship with his father that lies at its heart' Independent 'Every detail rings so true that you feel you have been offered a seat in his living-room. Suffusing all this is Manzoor's warm, humane, unsensational voice: it makes you want to extend the hand of friendship to him' Sunday Telegraph 'A small wonder - the end result is genuinely moving rites-of-passage in which pop music plays an essential role' Mojo
