Abstract [en]

Identity is something that is formed through the experiences and influences that happen to us as individuals throughout life. How a person’s identity is formed is something that is both interesting and fascinating. Hanif Kureishi’s The Black Album takes place in today’s Britain. His main character Shahid is, in his search for his true self and identity, torn between his fanatical friends, a multicultural interracial love affair and the historical baggage of postcolonial Britain. The author does not serve the reader with an easy solution to how identity is found, but more a true reflection of life itself, and that is what the book is all about. It is simply and convincingly a realistic account of a person’s search for identity in today’s multicultural Britain and all the complexity that comes with it.
