Award-winning writer Roopa Farooki's latest novel The Good Children is a family saga set across three continents and three generations. Named 'outstanding novel of the year' by the Daily Mail in 2014 it is a story of discipline and disobedience, punishment and the pursuit of passion, following the children of a game-changing generation and the ties that bind them across cultures, continents and decades.
Roopa's first novel, Bitter Sweets, was nominated for the Orange New Writers Award 2007; The Way Things Look To Me was voted one of The Times Top 50 Paperbacks of 2009, and longlisted for the Orange Prize. In 2013 Roopa was awarded the John C. Laurence prize from the Authors' Foundation, in recognition of her multicultural writing. She has taught creative writing at University of Kent and has lectured at Christ Church University, Canterbury, University of Oxford and at the Arvon Writers' Foundation.
