‘It is the saddest night, for I am leaving and not coming back.’
Jay is leaving his partner and their two sons. As the long night before his departure unfolds, in an unforgettable, and often pitiless, reflection on their time together he analyses the joys and agonies of trying to make a life with another person.
Kureishi is, simply, a wonderful writer, and Intimacy is a work of dark beauty.
‘It is by far the most astute and painful dissection of male sexual restlessness . . . The dialogue is shattering and there’s a blunt refusal to compromise . . . Telling the truth is always a precarious business, but Kureishi does it with seriousness, tenderness and upsetting aplomb.’
‘Kureishi has a rare and precious gift for character.’
