Like every nine-year-old girl, Meena can?t wait to grow up and break
free from her parents, but as the daughter of the only Punjabi family in
the mining village of Tollington, her daily struggle for independence is
different from most. She wants fishfingers and chips, not just chapati
and dhal; she wants an English Christmas, not the usual interminable Punjabi
festivities ? but more than anything, more than mini-skirts and the freedom
to watch 'Opportunity Knocks', Meena wants to roam the backyards of working-class
Tollington with feisty Anita Rutter and her gang.
Written with great warmth and fun and just a hint of wistfulness, Anita
and Me is a unique vision of a British childhood in the Sixties, a
childhood caught between two cultures, each on the brink of change.
