Reseña del editor
'It is the saddest night, for I am leaving and not coming back.'
Jay is leaving his partner and their two sons. As the long night before his departure unfolds he remembers the ups and downs of his relationship with Susan. In an unforgettable, and often pitiless, reflection of their time together he analyses the agonies and the joys of trying to make a life with another person.

Intimacy o Intimidad forma parte de este segundo grupo, junto con sus dos primeros volúmenes de cuentos, algunos relatos posteriores y parte de su obra cinematográfica. Esta es la parte de Kureishi que, personalmente, más me gusta, y a la que regreso una y otra vez.
En cada nuevo libro suyo espero recuperar esa experiencia fascinante de aquellos tres libros -los mismos que Patrice Chéreau usó para filmar su interpretación de Intimidad-. Aún no ha pasado, pero no desisto. Para mí Kureishi será siempre el escritor que mejor ha sabido expresar la imposibilidad de superar por completo la barrera aue separa a un ser humano del otro, a pesar del amor y la intimidad; la imposibilidad de conocer por completo al otro; la futilidad de intentar paliar la soledad rodeándose de otros.
