  • Enthralling as a thriller, yet also a beautiful human drama, and a serious enquiry into the possibility of goodness

    Tessa Hadley
  • Beautiful and brilliant. The exquisite writing is vivid, poetic and perceptive; the characters alive and compelling. Everything I want from a novel. I loved it.

    Stephen Merchant
  • Lively, poetically written and above all compassionate

    Sunday Times
  • Timely and hopeful

  • This sinuous morality tale unfurls from the alternating perspectives... Slinking along like a thriller, it encompasses people smuggling, the labyrinthine inhumanity of Britain's immigration system, alcoholism and a class prejudice that cuts both ways. Kindness and its motives are a constant preoccupation

  • Pulses with energy

    Mail on Sunday
  • A startlingly original, continuously astute, and deeply compassionate novel. You People alerts us, in these dark times, to the possibility of human nobility

    Pankaj Mishra
  • Lalwani's vivid, intensely empathic novel raises profound moral questions while maintaining the momentum and urgency of a thriller

    The Lady
  • Lalwani is a writer who understands people, and it shines through in her descriptions. This is a moving, authentic, humane novel which raises fundamental questions about what it means to be kind in an unkind world, and it will stay with me for a long time

  • Lalwani's novel tackles racism and xenophobia, but You People is essentially a compassionate human drama, full of perceptive insights
