Anita and Me, Paperback / softback Book

Description

This poignant coming-of-age tale follows Meena, a young girl growing up in the only Punjabi family in a 1970s Black Country mining village.

Meena spends her days happily getting into scrapes with the other local children until one day the impossibly cool Anita enters her life.

Suddenly Meena knows exactly who she wants to be but is Anita all that she seems?

Soon Meena's world is turned upside down as she is caught between two very different cultures.

Anita and Me paints a comic, poignant, compassionate and colourful portrait of village life in the era of flares, power cuts, glam rock, decimalisation and Ted Heath.

It has been adapted for the stage by the multi-award-winning Tanika Gupta.
