About the Author:

Hanif Kureishi grew up in Kent, England, and studied philosophy at King's College London. His novels include The Buddha of Suburbia, which won the Whitbread Prize for Best First Novel, The Black AlbumIntimacy, and The Last Word. His screenplays include My Beautiful Laundrette, which received an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay, Sammy and Rosie Get Laid, and Le Week-End. He has also published several collections of short stories. He has been awarded the Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and his works have been translated into 36 languages.

From Library Journal:

This collection contains Kureishi's original shooting scripts for two films directed by Stephen Frears, My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) and Sammy and Rosie Get Laid (1987), plus the screenplay for London Kills Me , Kureishi's forthcoming directorial debut. Laundrette is a wry tale of romance between two men, one a skinhead and the other an Asian entrepreneur; Sammy and Rosie is the tragicomic odyssey of an Islamic despot in London; and London is an unsentimental slice of life about a homeless young drug dealer. Kureishi, a Londoner of English and Pakistani descent, is a hip, daring dramatist and a persuasive advocate of the progressive social agenda. Few screenplay collections are as worthy of reading as this one. Also included are essays about the making and marketing of Sammy and Rosie and London , plus an autobiographical discussion of bigotry and multiculturalism, and a thinking person's celebration of the Beatles.
