Weddings and Beheadings

By Hanif Kureshi.

A story short listed for this year’s National Short Story Prize, the award created to celebrate the best in contemporary British short fiction.

In this hard hitting and chilling story we journey to an unnamed country where the rule of law has disintegrated. The narrative voice is that of a young man who once dreamed of making cinema, but now finds himself facing a bleak and frightening future.
