Journalist, TV presenter and news anchor for the BBC, Babita Sharma was raised in a corner shop in Reading, and over the counter watched a changing world, from the clientele to the products to the politics of the day. From the general stores of the early 20th century to the shops run by immigrants from India, East Africa and Eastern Europe from the 60s to the noughties, The Corner Shop tells the remarkable human story of these little institutions that have changed the way we shop, the way we eat, and the way we understand ourselves.
