Synopsis: The winner of the Whitbread Best First Novel 1990, this is the story of Karim Amir, an Englishman born and bred - almost, who lives with his English mother and Indian father in the South London suburbs. It is written by the author of My Beautiful Launderette and Sammy and Rosie Get Laid.
Review: There's quite a bit of activity in Buddha of Suburbia. A bureaucrat becomes a suburban guru who marries a follower with a son who's a punk rocker named Charlie Hero. Consequently, the guru's son is propelled from his bland life into a series of erotic experiences in London. All the while, Hanif Kureishi keeps the tone lively with wry wit. On the description of suburban life: "We were proud of never learning anything except the names of footballers, the personnel of rock groups and the lyrics to 'I Am the Walrus.'" He also bends cultures, classes and genders while blasting the racism of British life in this 1990 Whitbread Prize winner.
