Collected Stories


Hanif Kureishi
NZD $24.99

The essential collection from one of Britain's most celebrated and controversial writers.

Over the course of the last twelve 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, as well as his prophetic My Son the Fanatic, which explores 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.
