Modest Living,A: Memoirs of a Cockney Sikh

Author(s): Suresh Singh
ISBN13/Barcode: 9780995740136

In this first London Sikh biography, Suresh Singh tells the candid and sometimes surprising story of his father Joginder Singh who came to Spitalfields in 1949.

Joginder sacrificed a life in the Punjab to work in Britain and send money home, yet he found himself in his element living among the mishmash of people who inhabited the streets around Brick Lane.

Born and bred in London, his son Suresh became the first Punjabi punk, playing drums for Spizzenergi and touring with Siouxsie & the Banshees.

In the book, chapters of biography are alternated with Sikh recipes by Jagir Kaur.

A handsome clothbound hardback of 96 pages illustrated with photographs and printed in colour throughout.
