CHINA ROOM by Sunjeev Sahota has been longlisted for the 2021 Booker Prize. The judges praise: "Weaving together two timelines and two continents, CHINA ROOM struck us as a brilliant twist on the novel of immigrant experience, considering in subtle and moving ways the trauma handed down from one generation to the next. In crisp, clean prose, and with a dash of melodramatic action, Sahota turns these heavy themes into something filled with love, hope and humour." The shortlist will be announced on September 14, and the winner will be revealed in a ceremony on November 3. Viking published CHINA ROOM on July 13, 2021.
