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. 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.
