Sangam playlist for Monday, 19 August, 2013

.
Hello,

Here is the Sangam playlist for Monday, 19 August, 2013.

This week we have a special treat in the form of a conversation with Sujata Massey, the award winning author of the Rei Shimura mystery series. Sujata has now turned her pen to a different genre and she and I talk about her historical suspense novel "The Sleeping Dictionary" being released today (Tuesday, August 20).

The launch party for the book is being held at the bookstore "Once Upon a Crime" on Lyndale and 26th and starts at 7 pm. Sujata will be signing copies of her book at the event so here is a great opportunity to purchase a copy, meet with her, and have the book signed.

To honor the Bengali context of Sujata's book, several Bengali songs are included in this playlist.

The archived copy of this program will be available till 02 September, 2013, here: http://kfai.org/node/37863

Enjoy!

Hanif Kureishi and Daniel Day-Lewis

Her's an interesting film tidbit.

Daniel Day-Lewis (actor, "Lincoln", likely Academy Award nominations this year) and Hanif Kureishi (writer, "The Buddha of Suburbia", Whitbread Prize) got their start together.

"In 1985 My Beautiful Laundrette launched Kureishi and its star Daniel Day-Lewis into film, and won Kureishi an Academy Award nomination for best screenplay." (2008 interview below)



A recent (2012) interview with Kureishi is given here:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/9722077/Hanif-Kureishi-the-pariah-of-suburbia.html

In this interview Kureishi talks a little bit about his visit to Karachi. One of his latest short stories "The Door is Shut" starts in Karachi.
“I remembered being in Karachi in the Eighties and the liberalism my family lived under then was much under threat,” he says. “Now it’s completely gone. There are no Jews, Christians or Hindus. There are no Chinese restaurants. It has a terrible dead fascist atmosphere."



Read a 2008 interview with Hanif Kureishi at the link below: 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/books/3671392/Hanif-Kureishi-A-life-laid-bare.html

Note also this quote from Kureishi from this same interview:
"Art's got to feel dangerous to you and to other people; that's when it's working."





Some of Kureishi's books are:
