The Ties that Bind

Hearts and Minds


Little, Brown 432pp £17.99 order from our bookshop

A grand satire in the Victorian tradition, Amanda Craig’s Hearts and Minds explores the role of immigrants in all strata of London society. Craig traces the chains of dependency linking Cabinet ministers with minicab drivers, newspaper proprietors with East European sex slaves, and ultimately portrays the immigrant experience as a keystone in our national and individual identities.
