Posted July 2022


The son of an illiterate factory worker, Sathnam Sanghera started school unable to speak English – only to graduate from Cambridge and emerge as one of the country’s most loved and important writers. He joins us to explore about Marriage Material, his hugely acclaimed novel telling the story of three generations of a family through the prism of a Wolverhampton corner shop – a symbol of independence and integration, but also of darker realities.
