A lyrical and penetrating examination of what happened to one family and the Ugandan Asians more broadly
Weaving together tenderly reported personal stories with the grand sweep of imperial history, this is a compelling and impressive account of a time - and population - often overlooked
Full of humanity and touching detail, this is a remarkable and deeply researched exploration of a neglected moment in British social history. Fulford's timely book makes us understand how Idi Amin's expulsion of Ugandan Asians in 1972, and their subsequent treatment in the UK, still reverberate half a century later
Lucy Fulford's book is a thoroughly researched and careful examination of a monumental and overlooked era of history. Fulford's writing transports the reader to another era, masterfully weaves personal stories within a broader narrative, and shines a light on what it means to be from many places at once in today's Britain.
A brave and cutting account that is an essential read for those interested in the journey of Britain's Ugandan Asian population
