Description - Tourism by Nirpal Dhaliwal Singh
Bhupinder 'Puppy' Singh Johal handsome, rakish and spiritually disenfranchised has left behind the immigrant neighbourhood of Southall to mix with the elite of metropolitan London society. When sloaney rich-girl Sophie, falls for him, he grabs the chance to escape his past and pursue the woman of his dreams, the voluptuous sophisticate Sarupa, who happens to be engaged to Sophie s cousin. Using whatever and whoever he can, Puppy explores the grit and glamour of a city seething with the possibilities and politics of money, race and sex- an incendiary cocktail that explodes, changing him and those closest to him forever... Set in the long hot summer of 2002, Tourism is a filthy, unflinching and politically incorrect take on modern Britain.
