Five of the best contemporary British-Asian novels

Sathnam Sanghera is a British journalist and author of Marriage Material: A Novel and The Boy With The Topknot: A Memoir of Love, Secrets and Lies in Wolverhampton.

One of his best contemporary British-Asian novels, as published in the Telegraph:
Top of the list is Hanif Kureishi’s The Buddha of Suburbia (1990), which feels as fresh now as it did when it was first published. Kureishi was about a decade ahead of the curve when it came to identity and multiculturalism. Hats off to the guy.
