The Boy with Two Hearts is not only a tale of a family in crisis, but a love letter to the NHS, which provided hope and reassurance as they sought asylum in the UK and fought to save their loved ones - BBC blurb
Jane Kelly of The Conservative Woman, The Spectator and The Salisbury Review poses a question:
BBC Radio 4's Book of the Week is the adventure of a family from Afghanistan travelling through Europe to the UK to use the NHS. The premise of the book is not challenged in any way & I wonder who in the BBC metropolitan bubble selected it?
The BBC's Hugh Sykes replies:
Someone with a heart (and a heart in better health than Hussein's).
