Read full description of the books:



En la plácida existencia de un joven director de cine y vídeo que acaba de mudarse y cuya mujer espera un hijo reaparece un amigo de correrías juveniles que sigue llevando una vida desenfrenada; un hombre decide vengarse del amante de su esposa acostándose con su hija; un taxista indio integrado en la sociedad inglesa descubre que su hijo se ha convertido en un islamista fanático; un fotógrafo recibe de una pareja el encargo de fotografiarlos desnudos mientras hacen el amor; un cuarentón con un amplio historial de abuso de estupefacientes visita a los padres de su joven novia y en el lavabo de la casa cree descubrir que sus excrementos cobran vida; un guionista sin demasiados escrúpulos escribe un relato en forma de diario supuestamente redactado por la hija de su amante; una pareja que acaba de tener un hijo descubre que su casa ha sido invadida por una extraña plaga de moscas... Éstos son algunos de los personajes que protagonizan esta colección de relatos de Hanif Kureishi, en la que reaparecen los temas sobre los que gira toda su obra: Londres como ciudad cosmopolita y caótica, los conflictos raciales, las pulsiones sexuales, las complejas relaciones de pareja, el miedo a dejar atrás la juventud y enfrentarse a la vida adulta... Con una sugestiva gama de registros que va desde el realismo puro y duro hasta la alegoría de tintes kafkianos, el libro es una nueva muestra de la solidez narrativa de un escritor que ya ha dejado de ser una joven promesa para convertirse en un valor consolidado, uno de los grandes narradores británicos de su generación.

Read information about the author

Ebook Amor en tiempos tristes read Online! Hanif Kureishi is the author of novels (including The Buddha of Suburbia, The Black Album and Intimacy), story collections (Love in a Blue Time, Midnight All Day, The Body), plays (including Outskirts, Borderline and Sleep With Me), and screenplays (including My Beautiful Laundrette, My Son the Fanatic and Venus). Among his other publications are the collection of essays Dreaming and Scheming, The Word and the Bomb and the memoir My Ear at His Heart.

Kureishi was born in London to a Pakistani father and an English mother. His father, Rafiushan, was from a wealthy Madras family, most of whose members moved to Pakistan after the Partition of India in 1947. He came to Britain to study law but soon abandoned his studies. After meeting and marrying Kureishi’s mother Audrey, Rafiushan settled in Bromley, where Kureishi was born, and worked at the Pakistan Embassy.

Kureishi attended Bromley Technical High School where David Bowie had also been a pupil and after taking his A levels at a local sixth form college, he spent a year studying philosophy at Lancaster University before dropping out. Later he attended King’s College London and took a degree in philosophy. In 1985 he wrote My Beautiful Laundrette, a screenplay about a gay Pakistani-British boy growing up in 1980’s London for a film directed by Stephen Frears. It won the New York Film Critics Best Screenplay Award and an Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay.

His book The Buddha of Suburbia (1990) won the Whitbread Award for the best first novel, and was also made into a BBC television series with a soundtrack by David Bowie. The next year, 1991, saw the release of the feature film entitled London Kills Me; a film written and directed Kureishi.

His novel Intimacy (1998) revolved around the story of a man leaving his wife and two young sons after feeling physically and emotionally rejected by his wife. This created certain controversy as Kureishi himself had recently left his wife and two young sons. It is assumed to be at least semi-autobiographical. In 2000/2001 the novel was loosely adapted to a movie Intimacy by Patrice Chéreau, which won two Bears at the Berlin Film Festival: a Golden Bear for Best Film, and a Silver Bear for Best Actress (Kerry Fox). It was controversial for its unreserved sex scenes. The book was translated into Persian by Niki Karimi in 2005.

He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2008 New Year Honours.

Kureishi is married and has a pair of twins and a younger son.
