Midnight All Day - Hanif Kureishi I've just begun it. I'm looking forward for longer nights to read it more carefully as this book deserves.

The interesting thing in Kureishi's way of writing short stories is that you can read them like a theater script. Of course this peculiar ability depends on the fact that Kureishi wrote so much and successfully for theater.

Sentences are essential. Dialogues are crafted in a perfect and realistic way. Characters personalities are well drawn. You have the impression to be on stage while reading Midnight All Day short stories.
