Hanif Kureishi

Bart Moore-Gilbert

Published by Manchester University Press

Contemporary World Writers MUP

  • The first book-length study of one of Britain's most successful young writers
  • His work in a range of genres, from drama to film, fiction and short stories, has elicited widespread critical acclaim and - at times - provoked sharp condemnation
  • Provides a detailed account of his work to date, from Kureishi's early involvement in 'fringe' theatre (an area generally ignored hitherto), to the short story collections
  • Locates Kureishi's work securely in its historical, social, cultural and critical contexts, as well as providing detailed readings of all the major works
  • Kureishi is an important writer due to his intervention into such modish topics as British identity, questions of race, aspects of gender and choice of genre
