In this astonishing collection of stories, Hanif Kureishi confirms his reputation as Britain’s foremost chronicler of the loveless, the lost and the dispossessed. The characters in Midnight All Day are familiar to us all: frustrated and intoxicated, melancholic and sensitive, yet capable of great cruelty.
Powerful and true, leavened by a sharp wit that rarely deserts him.
For a writer with a fine track record in comedy, Kureishi is a master of the elegiac. He can convey, with enviable simplicity, the pain of lovers mourning past glories.
He wields a singularly pure and classical style, at times a dissecting instrument more reminiscent of the French tradition than the English. It is one of the paradoxes that make his art so successful.
Each book is better than the last, and this is no exception.
