Pigeon English (Paperback) Price: Rs.460

Newly arrived from Ghana with his mother and older sister, eleven-year-old Harrison Opoku lives on the ninth floor of a block of flats on an inner-city housing estate. The second best runner in the whole of Year 7, Harri races through his new life in his personalised trainers ? the Adidas stripes drawn on with marker pen ? blissfully unaware of the very real threat all around him.

With equal fascination for the local gang ? the Dell Farm Crew ? and the pigeon who visits his balcony, Harri absorbs the many strange elements of his new life in England: watching, listening, and learning the tricks of inner-city survival.

But when a boy is knifed to death on the high street and a police appeal for witnesses draws only silence, Harri decides to start a murder investigation of his own. In doing so, he unwittingly endangers the fragile web his mother has spun around her family to try and keep them safe.

A story of innocence and experience, hope and harsh reality, Pigeon English is a spellbinding portrayal of a boy balancing on the edge of manhood and of the forces around him that try to shape the way he falls.

About the Author
Stephen Kelman was born in Luton in 1976. After finishing his degree he worked variously as a warehouse operative, a careworker, and in marketing and local government administration. He decided to pursue his writing seriously in 2005, and has completed several feature screenplays since then. Pigeon English, published by Bloomsbury in March 2011, is his first novel.

Great Read

Loved Mr. Kelman's way with words. He is a master of this game. Cruising his way through the eyes of an eleven year old. Never in the whole book it felt that someone mature is behind the book. The narrative was always that of a young kid, innocent, inquisitive, honest, daring.

Definitely a masterpiece involving the gang wars of the immigrant American world.

Would have loved to see it win the Booker.
