Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this remaking of the myth of Orpheus, Rushdie tells the story of Vina Apsara, a pop star, and Ormus Cama, an extraordinary songwriter and musician, who captivate and change the world through their music and their romance. Beginning in Bombay in the fifties, moving to London in the sixties, and New York for the last quarter century, the novel pulsates with a half-century of music and celebrates the power rock 'n' roll.

Synopsis:

Vina Aspara, a famous and much-loved singer, is caught up in a devastating earthquake and never seen again by human eyes. This is her story, and that of Ormus Cama, the lover who finds, loses, seeks, and again finds her over and over throughout his own extraordinary life in music.

About the Author

traylorburford, November 24, 2007 (view all comments by traylorburford)
Rushdie's story is powerfully told. While it is hard at times for him to sustain the strength of his plot as this 500+ page novel unfolds, he more than makes up for it with powerful language that will pull you in and wrap itself around you like a lover. Or several lovers. His narrator Rai is easy to love and Rushdie captures his sad,hopeful and permanently unrequited love for Vina, the earth goddess mentioned in the title. There are startling bursts of poetic profundity that move in and out of the pages of this epic.
