As intriguing as it is informative, this 2006 book Bangla Brighton gives one of the lesser heard voices in our community a chance to be heard.

The contributors speak of making their lives in Brighton, memories of their homeland, culture and customs, their faith, day-to-day struggles, family life and the role of women.

Poetic and passionate, lively and lyrical, Bangla Brighton is a series of moving true life accounts of life on the South coast by Brighton and Hove’s Bangladeshi community. At times heartbreaking, but always full of hope, these stories offer the reader a glimpse into a fascinating culture.
