show #320: brothers in blood with amer anwar

show #320

amer anwar is guest on the book club today. his debut novel “brothers in blood” tells the story best friends zaq and jags who get sucked into a violent conspiracy in their south asian immigrant neighborhood of southall [a suburb in the west of london].

very cool fast-paced and excellently plotted “escapist” thriller fare, which nontheless had drax read with wikipedia wide open right next to the book, brushing up on sikhism and the indian partition of 1947. such is the beauty of immersing oneself into a delicious genre ride that takes place in a milieu foreign to one’s own: it expands the horizon, if you want that or not. enjoy:
