    Description

    Three young men from very different backgrounds come together in a journey from India to England, where they hope to begin something new. To support their families, where they can, to build their future, to show their worth, to escape the past. They have almost no idea of what awaits them. In a dilapidated shared house in Sheffield, Tarlochan, a former rickshaw driver, will say nothing about his life in Bihar. Avtar has a secret that binds him to the unpredictable Randeep. Randeep, in turn, has a visa-wife in a flat on the other side of town, whose cupboards are full of her husbands clothes, in case the immigration men surprise her with a visit. She is Narinder and her story is the most surprising of them all. Utterly absorbing and beautiful in its scope, The Year of the Runaways is written with compassion and touched by grace. As Tochi, Avtar, Randeep and Narinder negotiate their dreams, desires and shocking realities, as their histories continue to pull at them, as the seasons pass, what emerges is a novel of overwhelming humanity: one which asks how far we can decide our own course in life and what we should do for love, for faith and for family.

    Did not meet expectations

    This one star is not for the content of the book nor for the writer. This one star is for the flipkart. Did I order a 2 nd hand book? The condition of book is extremely bad. Torn cover gives this book a look of being taken out of store after ages. Come on flipkart I guess I have ordered a new book. Right?

    Unpleasant surprise

    I have received a used and damaged book. The spine is detached from the rest of the book both at the front and at the back as well.
    I can't believe this is happening with Flipkart! It should have been clearly mentioned in the book description that this is not a new book and all the damaged areas (such as the damaged spine in my book) should have been mentioned.
