Book Description

3 Mar 2011

Over the course of the last 12 years, Hanif Kureishi has written short fiction. The stories are, by turns, provocative, erotic, tender, funny and charming as they deal with the complexities of relationships as well as the joys of children.

This collection contains his controversial story Weddings and Beheadings, a well as his prophetic My Son the Fanatic, which exposes the religious tensions within the muslim family unit. As with his novels and screenplays, Kureishi has his finger on the pulse of the political tensions in society and how they affect people's everyday lives.

Product Description

Review

Cheever's accomplishment in his exacting art is proportionally large, as solid as it is brilliant, and likely to endure New York Review of Books Currently I'm reading John Cheever's Collected Stories. My God, he was good -- David Mitchell 'The Swimmer' is a masterpiece of mystery, language and sorrow -- Michael Chabon I reread Cheever's 'The Swimmer' late the other night. It had the effect that reading Cheever always has: it made me want to get up and start the futile task of trying to write something as measured yet mysteriously, heart-judderingly unexpected for myself -- Gordon Burns Sunday Times Magnificently touching, moving and funny, and often set in an imaginary but archetypically well-heeled American suburb -- Jan Morris

I saw a couple films based on his stories and got curious about the author. I wish there were a way I could indicate I'll review it later.
