'Hanif Kureishi's literary memoir explores his relationship with his father, a failed writer.
Kurieshi is, of course, hugely successful...' Esquire'This is an ambitious book.
Kureshi - free-associating with what feels like unmitigated honesty - successfully conveys the impression that in this book he has actually given us himself.' Sunday Times'Deeply involving, highly intelligent and, in what it doesn't say rather than what it does, profoundly sad.' Evening Standard'I don't think he has done anything as good, in any medium, as this moving and fiercely honest book.' Guardian
