Publisher Comments:

In this brilliantly focused and haunting portrait of the people, the politics, the land, and the poetry of Nicaragua, Salman Rushdie brings to the forefront the palpable human facts of a country in the midst of a revolution.

Rushdie went to Nicaragua in 1986, harboring no preconceptions of what he might find. What he discovered was overwhelming: a culture of heroes who had turned into inanimate objects and of politicians and warriors who were poets; a land of difficult, often beautiful contradictions. His perceptions always heightened by his special sensitivity to “the views from underneath,” Rushdie reveals a land resounding with the clashes between history and morality, government and individuals.

With a new preface by the author.

About the Author

Salman Rushdie is the author of seven novels: Midnights Children (winner of the Booker Prize); Shame; The Satanic Verses; The Moors Last Sigh; The Ground Beneath Her Feet; Haroun and the Sea of Stories; and Fury. He has also published a collection of short stories, East, West; and two volumes of essays, Imaginary Homelands and Step Across this Line.
