    Marriage Material (E–pub/E–book) Ü Sathnam Sanghera I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it I grew up in Wolverhampton at much the same time as this book is based and felt 'foreign' enough although I had only moved from Ayrshire so it was really interesting to see things so vividly portrayed from the point of view of an immigrant Sikh family The characters in the novel are so credibly drawn and come to life on the page so that you feel you know them Interesting too to se

Free read Marriage Material 100 Argic 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 than fifty yearsTaking inspiration from Arnold Bennett’s classic novel The Old Wives’ Tale Marriage Material tells the story of three gener. This is my second book from this author and I am a real fan He writes from his own experience as a second generation Asian growing up escaping and being forced back in Wolverhampton by family ties and culture which he thought he managed to escape from The story evolves around the family of a typical Asian corner shop its owner and family and the wider Indian community It s about looking back on how it was to live and grow up both in Enoch Powell s Black Country during he Rivers of Blood riots as well as in the Thatcher s 80s as an Asian kid But prejudice does not only exist in this story between white and Asian and vice versa but this story takes up the huge problems and ineualities which come with the Indian cast system which the Asian community clearly has brought with them to the UK It is also about the story of women and girls role what makes them the best Marriage Material Education in this case is a BAD thing It is easy to read this book and to just stipulate that the problems are all within the Asian community which holds especially their girls back However for me at least it had very clear synergies with some of my own experiences in the Germany s 80s and I know white girls during this time in the UK and I am sure elsewhere were fighting the same fight For the past 30 years I have been in a mixed racereligion marriage which I am happy to say is very happy but bridging especial cultural differences has not always been easy especially for me as a white European being accepted into an Iranian Islamic culture And just like in this book it s the women who are most difficult to convince that inter cultural and racial cooperation friendship and marriage is a good thing for both Why this should be is difficult to say but if you grow up with a narrow scope for your own life maybe it is difficult to let others have freedom I don t knowBefore you think this is a very depressing story it is that only in parts others are very funny The protagonist description of both cultures and ways of lives and reasons for doing things can be hilarious and I had to laugh very often If you don t let it hurt you ignorance can be funny never mind where it comes from Sanghera writes also in a very loving and respectful way of his communities he does clearly now manage to feel at home in both He has a great love for his family despite everything Great book really good writer would recommend it to anyone interested in these subjects
