Hanif Kureishi

Love in a Blue Time (2003)

Love in a Blue Time is a brilliant collection of stories by the bestselling author of The Buddha of Suburbia . This time, Hanif Kureishi's subject is the difficult, serious business of love - and hate. His stories have all the qualities of his novels: they are funny, inventive, bawdy, and aggressively contemporary. The characters that stride out of the pages of Love in a Blue Time , however damaged, deranged or despicable, are united by one thing: they are all creatures of strong desire.

'In this haunting, troubling collection of short stories, Hanif Kureishi has finally embraced the decadence that has lain in wait for him . . . A tense, desolate and consuming collection.' Observer

'The whole collection buzzes with anger and angst.' Time Out
