Kebab

Gianina Carbunariu (translated by Philip Osment)
 
Leaving Romania to make it rich abroad, Madalina finds herself working in a Dublin kebab shop. Fortunately her boyfriend has a better prospect. She'll be broadcast across the world and watched by thousands. It's a new start and surely things will never be as bad as back home.

Kebab explores some of the harsher realities of immigration and what people are willing to give up in the hope of a better life.

Review
The plot has an edge and a voice that is fresh and distinctive. Its observations on Romanian life in Dublin hum with integrity . -  Irish Independent
