Product Details


“In Salman Rushdie, India has produced a glittering novelist—one with startling imaginative and intellectual resources, a master of perpetual storytelling.”The New Yorker

“A marvelous epic . . . Rushdie’s prose snaps into playback and flash-forward . . . stopping on images, vistas, and characters of unforgettable presence. Their range is as rich as India herself.”Newsweek

“Burgeons with life, with exuberance and fantasy . . . Rushdie is a writer of courage, impressive strength, and sheer stylistic brilliance.”The Washington Post Book World

“Pure story—an ebullient, wildly clowning, satirical, descriptively witty charge of energy.”Chicago Sun-Times

“This brash, knowing, massive, aggressive novel is to modern India what Günter Grass’s The Tin Drum is to modern Germany.”The New York Times Book Review

“Dazzling . . . In combining past with present, nostalgic realism with mythic overtones, specific detail with complex and binding narrative devices, Rushdie has achieved a magnificent and unique work of fiction.”The Philadelphia Inquirer

Author Essay

One dusty summer evening in 1981 an extraordinary event took place in the sedate setting of India International Centre in New Delhi with its lawns, rose-beds and select circle of society members. A young writer from Britain with a Muslim name, whose second novel had just been published, gave a reading in the small auditorium that drew a crowd so unexpectedly large that it spilled out under the trees and loudspeakers had to be set up to broadcast his voice, a voice that everyone present recognized instantly as being the voice of a new age: strong, original and demanding of attention.
