NEW NEIGHBOURS IN THE NORTH

Philip Hensher’s tenth novel, The Friendly Ones, brings together two families from different cultures in an epic story about love, history and nationhood, set in Sheffield. Just down the road, the Yorkshire town of Keighley is the setting for Nikesh Shukla’s The One Who Wrote Destiny, where one Kenyan family has set up home, only to be riven by feuds and fall-outs. Two novels speaking volumes about Britain today.
