About this title


From the author of My Beautiful Launderette and Sammy and Rosie Get Laid. This screenplay tells the story of homeless Clint and his friend Muffdiver, whose primary source of income is selling drugs to the inhabitants of Notting Hill. But what Clint wants more than anything is a proper job.

From Library Journal:

This collection contains Kureishi's original shooting scripts for two films directed by Stephen Frears, My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) and Sammy and Rosie Get Laid (1987), plus the screenplay for London Kills Me , Kureishi's forthcoming directorial debut. Laundrette is a wry tale of romance between two men, one a skinhead and the other an Asian entrepreneur; Sammy and Rosie is the tragicomic odyssey of an Islamic despot in London; and London is an unsentimental slice of life about a homeless young drug dealer. Kureishi, a Londoner of English and Pakistani descent, is a hip, daring dramatist and a persuasive advocate of the progressive social agenda. Few screenplay collections are as worthy of reading as this one. Also included are essays about the making and marketing of Sammy and Rosie and London , plus an autobiographical discussion of bigotry and multiculturalism, and a thinking person's celebration of the Beatles.
