Part memoir, part social history, The Corner Shop, is a gentle, charming and at times poignant look at our nation of shopkeepers. Babita Sharma (now a BBC newsreader) uses her childhood, growing up above a corner shop in Reading with her immigrant family, to conjure that familiar world of news, tobacco and consumer essentials – and also to understand how the hackneyed image of Asians running corner shops came to dovetail with our ideas of British life.
