I Chose this rating because I find Hanif Kureishi a very perceptive and a clear write, with a strong sense of humour which show when he describes his position. His father was a Pakistani and his mother was British. He was born and bred as an English boy, had not even visited Pakistan, yet he faces all kinds of discrimination as a boy. Those were the years that Britain was compelled to face what its immigrants were feeling, and at first they felt that all immigrants had to conform. I like his conclusion written in the Rainbow Essay that the British had better come to terms with the coloured population whom he calls the Black British. As he writes over the years, we find an acceptance of his nationality by him. It is a thorough examination of what the whole migration question which is examined from BOTH sides.
