School Donation Program In Memory of How To Swap Books? Hanif Kureishi CBE born December 5, is an English playwright, screenwriter and filmmaker, novelist and short story writer.

The themes of his work have touched on topics of race, nationalism, immigration, and sexuality. His father, Rafiushan, was from a wealthy Madras family, most of whose members moved to Pakistan after the Partition of British India in He came to Britain to study law but soon abandoned his studies and later worked at the Pakistan Embassy.

After his father and mother Audrey Buss married, the family settled in Bromley where Kureishi was born. He attended Bromley Technical High School where David Bowie had also been a pupil and after taking his A levels at a local sixth form college, he spent a year studying philosophy at Lancaster University before dropping out. Later he attended King's College London and took a degree in philosophy.

He wrote My Beautiful Laundrette in , a screenplay about a gay Pakistani-British boy growing up in s London for a film directed by Stephen Frears. The next year, , saw the release of the feature film entitled London Kills Me ; a film written and directed by Kureishi himself. His novel Intimacy revolved around the story of a man leaving his wife and two young sons after feeling physically and emotionally rejected by his wife. This created certain controversy as Kureishi himself had recently left his own partner the editor and producer Tracey Scoffield and two young sons; it was assumed to be at least semi-autobiographical.

It was controversial for its unreserved sex scenes. The book was translated into Persian by Niki Karimi in His family have accused him of exploiting them with thinly disguised references in his work; Kureishi has denied the claims. His sister Yasmin has accused him of selling her family "down the line". She wrote, in a letter to The Guardian , that if her family's history had to become public she would not stand by and let it be "fabricated for the entertainment of the public or for Hanif's profit".

She says that his description of her family's working class roots are fictitious. Their grandfather was not "cloth cap working class", their mother never worked in a shoe factory, and their father, she says, was not a bitter old man. Yasmin takes up issues with her brother not merely for his thinly disguised autobiographical references in his first novel, The Buddha of Suburbia , but also for the image about his past that he portrays in newspaper interviews.

She wrote: "My father was angry when The Buddha of Suburbia came out as he felt that Hanif had robbed him of his dignity, and he didn't speak to Hanif for about a year.

It showed a cross-generational relationship with changed roles: a seventy-year-old English lady and grandmother played by Anne Reid who seduces her daughter's boyfriend played by Daniel Craig , a thirty-year-old craftsman.

Explicit sex scenes were shown in realistic drawings only, thus avoiding censorship. His latest novel, Something to Tell You , was published in His story was published in the 'Earth' collection.
