Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this brilliant novel, Salman Rushdie masterfully combines history, art, language, politics, and religion. Set in a country not quite Pakistan, the story centers around the families of two men — one a celebrated warrior, the other, a debauched playboy engaged in a protracted duel that is played out in the political landscape of their country. Shame is a tour de force and a fitting predecessor to the author's legendary novel, The Satanic Verses.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
