Reprint. Originally published: 2012.

It is New Year's Eve, 1982, and the whole gang is at Victor and Nandini's house.

The Godfather is on repeat upstairs. Baila music is blaring from the record player in the lounge.

Poppadoms are frying in the kitchen. And Preethi, tipsy on youth and friendship and covert cigarettes out the window, just wants to belong.

But what does that mean, to belong? From that New Year's party to a family funeral, via ghetto blasters and growing pains, through 7/7 and the world according to Charlie Chaplin, life in all of its complexity happens to Preethi, Nil, Lolly, Rohan, and their tightly knotted Sri Lankan families in south London.
