Synopsis: A wonderfully colourful, warm and epic novel of London life, love, sex and regret from one of Britain's greatest contemporary writers. Jamal is a successful psychoanalyst haunted by his first love and a brutal act of violence from which he can never escape. Looking back to his coming of age in the 1970s forms a vivid backdrop to the drama that develops thirty years later, as he and his friends face an encroaching middle age with the traumas of their youth still unresolved. Like The Buddha of Suburbia, Something to Tell You is full-to-bursting with energy as the characters struggle with their desires. At times comic, at times painfully tender, the book explores the relationships between men and women, parents and children. With unfailing deftness of touch Kureishi has created a memorable cast of recognisable individuals, all of whom wrestle with their own limits as human being, haunted by the past until they find it within themselves to forgive. About the Author&colon Hanif Kureishi is the author of novels (including The Buddha of Suburbia, The Black Album and Intimacy), short story collections (Love in a Blue Time, Midnight All Day, The Body), plays and screenplays (including My Beautiful Laundrette and Venus). He has also written a memoir, My Ear at his Heart. "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
