A Chat With Kureishi

"For a guy who always seems to be writing from the eye of a cultural whirlwind, Kureishi in person seems improbably even-keeled. A compact man of medium height, with tightly cropped gray hair and a stare as focused as a peregrine falcon's, he chats with amiable forthrightness about an array of booby-trapped subjects: Slavish materialism in the post-Thatcher era. Inter-religious strife. The nasty, as well as euphoric, things that can happen between a man and a woman in bed..."

- The LA Times profiles Hanif Kureishi, who's working on a "fat, juicy novel", and awaiting the release of Venus, which he's scripted.
