Love in a Blue Time: Short Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This provocative collection of short stories charts the growth of a generation from the liberating irreverence of the late 1970s to the dilemmas of responsibility and fidelity of the 1990s. The stories resonate with Hanif Kureishi's dead-on observations of human passion and folly, his brilliant depiction of seedy locales and magical characters, and his original, wicked sense of humor.

Review:

"[Kureishi's] got the master touch when it comes to making us feel we've been thrust into the thick of things....Kureishi's love of the world has always been the heartbeat of his work." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A writer with Renaissance talent and Rabelaisian energy." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Kureishi...knows both sides of the street and applies to them a cultured prose...combining the restlessness of Chekhov with the grim accuracy of apocalyptically minded American contemporaries like Robert Stone." San Francisco Chronicle
