The hero of Hanif Kureishi's debut novel is a dreamy teenager, desperate to escape suburban South London and experience the forbidden fruits which the 1970s seem to offer. When the unlikely opportunity of a life in the theatre announces itself, Karim starts to win the sort of attention he has been craving, albeit with some rude and raucous results.

    " Well, I must admit to laughing hysterically when I read it the first time, and finding a lot of the sex scenes unnecessary. This lead me to thinking about why on earth this book was set on the first year literary theory course. After some reflection and reading Spivak, Said and Fanon, I am seeing why it is on the syllabus. So, overall, quite good, appreciation for it is growing over time. "

    " This book has very mixed reviews. It was funny in parts. A bit long winded in others. I didn't really feel involved with the characters. "
