Winner of the Cambridgeshire Book of the Decade
The Cambridge Curry Club
The title is postcolonial tongue-in-cheek. No curry feasts dripping off the book's pages. Not even a whiff of tikka masala. No recipes, either. Sorry. Yes, there is life outside and beyond curry.
The Curry Club had a rehearsed reading at London’s Soho Theatre in 2003. The play's theatricality, dialogue and “scene” quality have been retained in the novel, giving rise to a particular form and structure. No, there isn’t even a central character. If you are a purist — once again, sorry.
