The Nothing by Hanif Kureishi

I heard the interview for the 2nd time, I think, earlier this morning. The first time was yesterday. But yesterday I didn’t get far enough to listen to the actual interview. Come to think about it, it might have been a preview about the interview that I did listen to this morning that they were talking about yesterday.

In any case, during the interview I learned a bit more about the author, Hanif Kureishi. He also wrote (or wrote the screenplay) “My Beautiful Laundrette”, which of course now is on my wishlist.

Mar 31st, ’18 – It’s taking me quite a long time to finish this but that is not because I am not enjoying it. If anything I am enjoying it a bit too much. But every little section I read, I get to a point that is a bit too interesting and I have to put it down to think about the section. But am hoping to finish it soon.

It’s actually funny, because I was looking for a different movie, Khaad, that my friend had suggested and searching for it lead to no success I fell back to re-watch Moonstruck and after finishing it I was just browsing and stumbled.
