'The rites of passage of a young Sikh growing up in Derby, an obsession with a man called Steve Bloomer, the tragic downward spiral and eventual death by his own hand of the author's father - these are just some of the recurring themes in this poignant, warm - but often painful - memoir that readers across generations and cultures will find utterly absorbing.
'A hugely important story, told with profound, sometimes painful honesty regarding a subject we all too readily shy away from. Kalwinder Singh Dhindsa captures the vibrancy, the reality, the complexity of every Punjabi family. And he shares the tragedy of his own. A brave and captivating read.' Hardeep Singh Kohli
'Anyone who has been stalked by the Black Dog, anyone who has had the shadows and tragedies of life growl at them, will recognise the brave, brutal truth of this work. Kalwinder Singh Dhindsa moves with unexpected grace from the darkest of personal places to cathartic moments of joy and insight. More sorrow, drama and redemption per page than I have read for a long time.' David Southwell
