Praise

TIME Magazine’s Best Book of the Year

“Fierce, phantasmagorical…a huge, sprawling, exuberant novel.” The New York Times

“Rushdie, the author of nine previous books—including The Satanic Verses, which prompted Ayatollah Khomeini to issue his death sentence in 1989—alludes often to his own exile, the story of modern India and the dangers of art. At first the hyperbole, didactic asides, verbal puns, lyrical and lewd jokes, and slapstick routines seem a bit much, but if you stick with it, a cumulative magic takes hold. Rushdie’s satiric, hysterically funny, political family tragedy is a masterpiece.” Salon

“Salman Rushdie’s greatest novel…held me is its thrall and provided the richest fictional experience of 1995.” The Sunday Times

“The most complete and gratifying work to emerge from Salman Rushdie’s imagination…. The Moor’s Last Sigh is an exotic story, in its setting, in its characters, in its punning extravagance, and in its deeply human core. It is an extraordinary family saga…full of wonderful characters, and the insight born of genuine reflection…A remarkable spell of creativity.” The Edmonton Journal

“A rich, wonderfully readable novel.” Toronto Star
