Winner of the orange broadband prize for fiction 2008

A wise and witty look at the contemporary migrant experience. We follow the story of Lev, newly arrived from Eastern Europe and looking for work. Ahead lies the strangeness of the British: their hostile streets, their obsession with celebrity. Behind him loom the figures of his dead wife, his beloved young daughter and his outrageous friend Rudi. London holds the alluring possibility of friendship, sex, money and a new career and perhaps a new sense of belonging. Packed with vibrant characters, rich with imagery and invention and poignant and moving, it is a hugely enjoyable read.
