The Independent Culture

A teeming novel that draws on all the author's talent for comic discovery, Something to Tell You describes the trajectory of Jamal Khan as he matures from a left-wing wannabe into a middle-aged flaneur, a psychoanalyst for whom "secrets are my currency".

Pursued by memories of his first love and a transformative act of violence, Jamal and his friend Henry feel their way through erotic misadventures and serious friendships. They also run into some old-favourite Kureishi characters, rather changed since we first met them in Thatcher's Britain.
