The Handsworth Times | Sharon Duggal

It is 1981, factories are closing, unemployment is high, the NF are marching and the neglected inner cities are ablaze as riots breakout across Thatcher’s’ fractured Britain. The Agarwals are facing their own personal nightmare but their pain is eased by family, friendships and a community that refuses to disappear. The Handsworth Times is a book about loss, friendship and working together because there is such a thing as society.
