Description

‘No one else casts such a shrewd and gimlet eye on contemporary life.’ – William Boyd

Comic, dark and insightful, What Happened? is Hanif Kureishi’s new collection of essays and fiction. No topic is too fringe or too mainstream for this insatiable-and much-loved-author. From social media to the ancient classics, from appraisals of David Bowie to Georges Simenon to Keith Jarrett, this is the latest literary ‘event’ in a unique body of work that displays Kureishi’s characteristic boundless curiosity and wit. What Happened? is as much about the very fact of Kureishi’s catholic appetite for culture as his observations and insights themselves, and any new book in his oeuvre is a justification for celebration.
