To fulfill the requirements of this assignment, please answer the question below. You will need to bring two texts together in this assignment: Hanif Kureshi’s The Buddha of Suburbia and Nahem Yousaf’s book Hanif Kureshi’s The Buddha of Suburbia. The latter book is available in the “Files” section of our EC Learn page. You will use sections of both texts in your answer. Please include direct quotations (phrases, words, or full sentences) in your answer and please reference page numbers.
For example, if you have a quotation from page 118 in Kureshi’s novel, you will need to note the page number like this: (Kureshi 118). Similarly, if you refer to Yousaf’s book, you will need to refer to a page number like this: (Yousaf 117).
Do not exceed five sentences of reasonable length in your answer and take the time to write clearly and efficiently. Please type your answers and upload your final draft on EC Learn. I will not accept hand-written answers. This assignment is worth ten (10) points.
Each of you has the ability to do well on this assignment. The challenge here is to integrate ideas from each text into your answer seamlessly. You do not have much space to work with in this assignment. Every word in every sentence counts. (Remember one important thing: quotations from your primary texts count towards the seven-sentence limit.) Take your time with this assignment. Give yourself about ten (10) total hours to complete it.
You will need to create an accurate MLA (8th edition) citation for Nahem Yousaf’s Hanif Kureshi’s The Buddha of Suburbia. This citation will be worth two (2) of the total ten (10) available points.
10-Pointsà Using “In the Suburbs” from Hanif Kureshi’s The Buddha of Suburbia and the first two chapters of Nahem Yousaf’s Hanif Kureshi’s The Buddha of Suburbia, please answer the following question: How does Kureshi critique the racism Karim faces in Chapter 3 of his novel (33-45)? (You may use evidence from other chapters of the “In the Suburbs” section of this novel, but you are not required to do so. Similarly, you will need to use some information from either the first or second chapter of Yousaf’s book, but you do not have to present information from both chapters.)
