Meatspace by Nikesh Shukla( Book )

7 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meatspace is the world of flesh and blood where you're physically present; it's the opposite of cyberspace. Kitab and Aziz are brothers living together in London who are as fully plugged in to the grid as it's possible to be. They obsessively check and update their many channels of connection, are slaves to the hourly updates, and are unable to last an entire conversation without checking their phones for texts, emails and Tweets. Then Aziz leaves for New York to find his online doppelganger, and "Kitab 2" shows up on the doorstep. Can Kitab live up to his online persona?

"Mukesh has just moved from Kenya to the drizzly northern town of Keighley. He was expecting fame, fortune, the Rolling Stones and a nice girl, not poverty, loneliness and racism. Still, he might not have found Keith Richards, but he did find the girl. Neha is dying. Lung cancer, a genetic gift from her mother and an invocation to forge a better relationship with her brother and her widowed father before it's too late. The problem is, her brother is an unfunny comedian and her idiot father is a first-generation immigrant who moved to Keighley of all places. Rakesh is grieving. He lost his mother and his sister to the same illness, and his career as a comedian is flat-lining. Sure, his sister would have claimed that it was because he was simply unfunny, but he can't help feel that there is more to it than that - more to do with who he is and where he comes from rather than the content of his jokes. Ba has never looked after her two young grandchildren before. After her daughter died, her useless son-in-law dumped them on her doorstep for a month and now she has to try and work out how to bond with two children who are used England, not to the rhythms of Kenya."--Provided by publisher

When they start noticing boarded-up flats and glossy fliers for expensive apartments, they don't think much of it - until Hari is caught up in a tragedy, and they are forced to go on the run. It's up to these teenagers to uncover the sinister truth behind what's going on in the block, before it blows their world apart
The time machine by Nikesh Shukla( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not so stories by David Thomas Moore( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories was one of the first true children's books in the English language, a timeless classic that continues to delight readers to this day. Beautiful, evocative and playful, the stories of How the Whale Got His Throat or How the First Letter Was Written paint a world of magic and wonder. It's also deeply rooted in British colonialism. Kipling saw the Empire as a benign, civilising force, in a way that's troubling to modern readers. Not So Stories attempts to redress that balance, bringing together new and established writers of colour from around the world to take the Just So Stories back, to interrogate, challenge and celebrate their legacy."--Back cover

The good immigrant : 21 writers explore what it means to be black, Asian & minority ethnic in Britain today by Nikesh Shukla( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Random House presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Good Immigrant, read by the authors.How does it feel to be constantly regarded as a potential threat, strip-searched at every airport? Or be told that, as an actress, the part you're most fitted to play is 'wife of a terrorist'? How does it feel to have words from your native language misused, misappropriated and used aggressively towards you? How does it feel to hear a child of colour say in a classroom that stories can only be about white people? How does it feel to go 'home' to India when your home is really London? What is it like to feel you always have to be an ambassador for your race? How does it feel to always tick 'Other'? Bringing together 21 exciting black, Asian and minority ethnic voices emerging in Britain today, The Good Immigrant explores why immigrants come to the UK, why they stay and what it means to be 'other' in a country that doesn't seem to want you, doesn't truly accept you - however many generations you've been here - but still needs you for its diversity monitoring forms.Inspired by discussion around why society appears to deem people of colour as bad immigrants - job stealers, benefit scroungers, undeserving refugees - until, by winning Olympic races or baking good cakes, or being conscientious doctors, they cross over and become good immigrants, editor Nikesh Shukla has compiled a collection of essays that are poignant, challenging, angry, humorous, heartbreaking, polemic, weary and - most importantly - real
