The Moor's last sigh

The Moor's last sigh Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his first novel since The Satanic Verses, Rushdie gives readers a masterpiece of controlled storytelling, informed by astonishing scope and ambition, by turns compassionate, wicked, poignant, and funny. From the paradise of Aurora's legendary salon to his omnipotent father's sky-garden atop a towering glass high-rise, the Moor's story evokes his family's often grotesque but compulsively moving fortunes in a world of possibilities embodied by India in this century.

About the Author

Salman Rushdie is the author of seven novels — Grimus, Midnight's Children (for which he won the Booker Prize and the "Booker of Bookers"), Shame, The Satanic Verses, Haroun and the Sea of Stories, The Moor's Last Sigh, and The Ground Beneath Her Feet — and one work of short stories, East, West. He has also published four works of non-fiction: The Jaguar Smile, Imaginary Homelands, The Wizard of Oz, and Mirrorwork.
