Reviews

The idea of a celibate Hanif Kureishi hero tormented by the very urges he once indulged is an excellent one -- think Philip Roth in a chastity belt. Given the current cultural and political climate, in fact, that idea may have even more than usual appeal -- New York Times Book Review
Hanif Kureishi's short, sharp tale of revenge is diabolical fun. -- The Times
