"Salman Rushdie’s great grasp of the human tragicomedy–its dimensions, its absurdities and horrors–has made him one of the most intelligent fiction writers in the English language."
–Gail Caldwell, The Boston Globe
"Fury is a profoundly, ecstatically affirmative work of fiction. It reaffirms Rushdie’s standing, in my opinion, at the very front rank of contemporary literary novelists."
–Michael Pakenham, Baltimore Sun
"Rushdie’s ideas–about society, about culture, about politics–are embedded in his stories and in the interlocking momentum with which he tells them. His reflective power lies in the way his fiction simply unfolds. All of Rushdie’s synthesizing energy, the way he brings together ancient myth and old story, contemporary incident and archetypal emotion, transfigures reason into a waking dream."
—Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Well, here it is, then, his first 3-D, full-volume American novel, finger-snapping, wildly stupefying, often slyly funny, red-blooded and red-toothed. [Fury] twinkles brightly in tragicomic passages."
—The Miami Herald
