Hanif Kureishi

From The Buddha of Suburbia to The Black Album, Hanif Kureishi has inspired generations of young British writers and readers. In this Manchester Literature Festival event, he discusses his award-winning fiction, his acclaimed screenplays (from the Oscar nominated My Beautiful Laundrette to Sammy and Rosie Get Laid and Le Week-End) to his forthcoming book, What Happened? Comic, dark and insightful, his new collection of essays and fiction displays his unique observations of popular culture from social media to the ancient classics; from David Bowie to Georges Simenon.

Presented by Manchester Literature Festival in partnership with the Centre for New Writing and Creative Manchester.

Doors open 7pm.
