    In these ten wry and exhilirating stories, Hanif Kureishi, author of "The Buddha of Suburbia, The Black Album," and of the screenplays for "My Beautiful Laundrette, Sammy and Rosie Get Laid, London Kills Me," and "My Son the Fanatic, brilliantly captures the passion and folly of the human comedy.

    Hanif Kureishi

    Hanif Kureishi is the author of novels (including The Buddha of Suburbia, The Black Album and Intimacy), story collections (Love in a Blue Time, Midnight All Day, The Body), plays (including Outskirts, Borderline and Sleep With Me), and screenplays (including My Beautiful Laundrette, My Son the Fanatic and Venus). Among his other publications are the collection of essays Dreaming and Scheming, The Word and the Bomb and the memoir My Ear at His Heart.

    His book The Buddha of Suburbia (1990) won the Whitbread Award for the best first novel, and was also made into a BBC television series with a soundtrack by David Bowie. The next year, 1991, saw the release of the feature film entitled London Kills Me; a film written and directed Kureishi.
