Desert Dawn by Waris Dirie

Desert Dawn

By Waris Dirie

This is a true account of Waris Dirie’s return to her African roots to search for her family. Caught between the conflicting cultures of her new home in the US and her native Somalia, this is also a tale of conflicting emotions – pain mingles, almost unbelievably, with humour, as Waris confronts her past.

Far Inland by Peter Urpeth

Far Inland

By Peter Urpeth

A man struggles with his sanity after being mugged in a Glasgow street, as flashbacks to his Hebridean forbears draw him back to Lewis. Unhappy, mystical tale of shamanistic ritual and peats.

Chapatti or Chips? by Nisha Minhas

Chapatti or Chips?

By Nisha Minhas

This is a wickedly funny book set in Milton Keynes which raises a few cultural issues along the way. If you’re looking for a serious read don’t choose this one. But if you’re after a light holiday read to share with your teenage daughter, this could be the one for you.
