The Buddha of Suburbia

Hanif Kureishi, Author Penguin Books $15 (288p) ISBN 978-0-14-013168-0
Karim Amir, bored with his suburban lifestyle in England, is propelled into the fast lane and introduced to disparate cultures, classes and genders thanks to a disorienting chain of events sparked by his father, a self-proclaimed guru. PW called this ``delectable. . . . Resembling a modern-day Tom Jones , this is an astonishing book, full of intelligence and elan.'' (May)
