Hanif Kureishi already has introduced Americans to new fictional territory in his two films, My Beautiful Laundrette and Sammy and Rosie Get Laid, and in his novel, The Buddha of Suburbia. His latest screenplay, London Kills Me, which he describes as "a story about two guys looking for these shoes," returns viewers and readers to London streetlife and culture that only Kureishi could reveal. This collection includes his three screenplays as well as essays about the background of each film or life on the set or the hilarity of the Academy Awards in Hollywood. In addition, Kureishi has written about the Beatles--a comic commentary on class and culture in England.
Together these essays and screenplays illuminate the remarkable imagination and wit of an extraordinarily acute and irreverent social analyst who has secured his place at the forefront of both the film and literary worlds with his uniquely recognizable voice.
