Editorial Reviews

Review

'SHAME is an inspiring book, not least because of its honesty.' The Sunday Times 'A vivid, honest and deeply moving narrative of despair, courage and hope.' Lord Lester speaking in Parliamentary debate 'Angry, sad and profoundly disturbing ... a powerful read' The London Paper 'Unbeaten and eloquent' Evening Standard 'A success story to inspire anyone.' Time Magazine 'Heart-wrenching.' Daily Mail The glossy cover doesn't prepare you for the impact this book has ... It gives me hope that there are people like the author of this book who are willing to write their experiences with such passion and clarity. A must-read. Asians in Media The last non-fiction book I read was Shame by Jasvinder Sanghera, about a British Asian woman whose parents forced her into a marriage. That was brilliant. Cameron On Cameron by Dylan Jones --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
