Kamila Shamsie and Sunjeev Sahota: Authorship and Writing Histories

China Room by Sunjeev Sahota is the story of Mehar, a young bride in rural 1929 Punjab, and that of a young man who in 1999 travels from England to the now-deserted farm, its china room locked and barred. To celebrate its publication and being longlisted for the Booker Prize 2021, in this episode, Ted Hodgkinson talks to Kamila Shamsie and Sunjeev Sahota about China Room, authorship, writing histories, and more.
