Product description

Review

...brilliant...fascinating and infuriating...Kureishi has an extraordinary gift for creating vivid characters. -- The Boston Globe

'A wonderful novel. I doubt I will read a funnier one, or one with more heart, this year, possibly this decade.' --Angela Carter, Guardian

One of the best comic novels of growing up, and one of the sharpest satires on race relations in this country that I've ever read.--Independent on Sunday

'Brilliantly funny. A fresh, anarchic and deliciously unrestrained novel.' Sunday Times (London)

'A distinctive and talented voice, blithe, savvy, alive and kicking.' Hermione Lee, Independent (London)

delectable. . . . Resembling a modern-day Tom Jones, this is an astonishing book, full of intelligence and elan.'' -- Publishers Weekly

This remarkably fine first novel from the author of the screenplays My Beautiful Launderette and Sammy and Rosie Get Laid is a freewheeling tour through the London of the 1970's--a London as vice- and class-ridden as that of a Hogarth engraving.-- Kirkus Reviews

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
