Description By focusing on Tabish Khair’s latest literary endeavour, a short novel entitled Night of Happiness (2018), this paper sets out to investigate what, in the writer’s opinion, is the root of most problems affecting human relationships and society as a whole: our unwillingness to embrace the unexpected complexity of reality, reassuringly misperceived through the filter of one’s misconceptions.
Z analizo zadnjega dela Tabisha Khairja, kratkega romana Night of Happiness (2018) članek raziskuje, kaj je po pisateljevem mnenju vir večine težav, ki zadevajo človeške odnose in družbo kot celoto.
