Praise

“…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
