The Year of the Runaways free pdf Short-listed for the Man Booker Prize From one of "Granta" s Best of Young British Novelists and Man Booker Prize nominee Sunjeev Sahota a sweeping, urgent contemporary epic, set against a vast geographical and historical canvas, astonishing for its richness and texture and scope, and for the utter immersiveness of its reading experience. Three young men, and one unforgettable woman, come together in a journey from India to England, where they hope to begin something new to support their families- to build their futures- to show their worth- to escape the past. They have almost no idea what awaits them. In a dilapidated shared house in Sheffield, Tarlochan, a former rickshaw driver, will say nothing about his life in Bihar. Avtar and Randeep are middle-class boys whose families are slowly sinking into financial ruin, bound together by Avtar s secret. Randeep, in turn, has a visa wife across town, whose cupboards are full of her husband s clothes in case the immigration agents surprise her with a visit. She is Narinder, and her story is the most surprising of them all. "The Year of the Runaways" unfolds over the course of one shattering year in which the destinies of these four characters become irreversibly entwined, a year in which they are forced to rely on one another in ways they never could have foreseen, and in which their hopes of breaking free of the past are decimated by the punishing realities of immigrant life. A novel of extraordinary ambition and authority, about what it means and what it costs to make a new life about the capaciousness of the human spirit, and the resurrection of tenderness and humanity in the face of unspeakable suffering."
