Reading the story about him missing the Star Wars celebrations event as Homeland security stopped him at the airport. It’s a good time as any to re-up his essay about Typecast as a terrorist |

Technically Hardback was the first book with my name on the cover but these three are my first attempts at co-authoring and co-editing books. Different topics and audiences, all published in 2019. Got to work with some excellent writers too.

On the Tube, I saw someone reading - I was shocked as I have never seen a member of the public reading any of my book projects before. Awkward as I looked at her excitedly and then looked away quickly without explaining why, then walked off down the carriage 😩

Here’s my essay from , “The Ungrateful Country”, which has kindly been republished by ; it felt relevant in Priti Patel’s era, with migrants forced to remind people they are not just economic units. If keen, please share.

Wanted to put some thoughts out there about what it means to be a British citizen born to immigrant parents. Its based on having her citizenship removed. Excuse the length & grammatical errors.
