Hari Kunzru’s opinions

  • The Stranger’s Child is a profoundly nostalgic book, in the strict Greek sense of “homesickness”: it longs to go home to the prelapsarian past, from whose sensuous immediacy (two lovers in a wood) we have been exiled into the rootless present. The modern world (and indeed the world of modernism) appears to have few positive qualities.
