He walked around them, before going closer and squatting down. They smelt of dung, mud, the countryside and grass.

The protagonist of Hanif Kureishi's delightful novel is Gabriel, a fifteen-year-old London schoolboy trying to come to terms with a new life, after the equilibrium of his family home has been shattered bt the ousting of his father. Fending for himself, as well as providing emotional support to his confused (and confusing) parents, Gabriel is forced to grow up quickly. Since the mid-80s when Kureishi started to write I have been a close follower of his fiction work and screenplays. His main characters in his books whether in the Black Album, The Buddha of Suburbia and My Beautiful Laundrette are always at the crossroads. His characters live and mostly survive in a world accentuated by racial and sexual politics and loss and rediscovery of identity.
