Summary
"After discovering an abandoned manuscript of his father's, hidden for years, Hanif Kureishi was compelled to turn his "unflinching perspective" (Time Out) onto his own history. Like Roth, Martin Amis and Geoffrey Wolfe, who also have written books about their fathers, Kureishi wanted to understand and perhaps to reconcile." "My Ear at His Heart offers remarkable insight into the birth of a writer, chronicling how Kureishi's own literary calling emerged from the ashes of his father's aspirations. And so begins a journey that takes Kureishi through his father's privileged childhood by the sea in Bombay, through the turbulent birth of Pakistan and to his modest adult life in England - his days spent as a civil servant, his nights writing prose, hopeful of one day receiving literary recognition."--Jacket
