UK: SPOKEN WORD
18 March 2008, 7.45pm
the publication of his bestselling novel The Buddha of Suburbia,
Hanif Kureishi staked out
new territory in British fiction. His
latest novel, Something To Tell You, offers an even wider panorama
of contemporary London, with a colourful cast of characters
approaching middle age, yet haunted by
their coming of age in the
1970s. The writing is honest, tender and comic. Kureishi reads
from his novel before discussing his work with Kamila Shamsie,
author of Broken Verses and Kartography.
