Synopsis:
Jamal is a successful psychoanalyst haunted by his first love and a brutal act of violence from which he can never escape. Looking back to his coming of age in the 1970s forms a vivid backdrop to the drama that develops thirty years later, as he and his friends face an encroaching middle age with the traumas of their youth still unresolved. Like "The Buddha of Suburbia", "Something to Tell You" is full-to-bursting with energy, at times comic, at times painfully tender. With unfailing deftness of touch Kureishi has created a memorable cast of recognisable individuals, all of whom wrestle with their own limits as human beings, haunted by the past until they find it within themselves to forgive.

Author Biography:
Hanif Kureishi is the author of novels (including The Buddha of Suburbia, The Black Album and Intimacy), short story collections (Love in a Blue Time, Midnight All Day, The Body), plays and screenplays (including My Beautiful Laundrette and Venus). He has also written a memoir, My Ear at his Heart.
