The Ground Beneath Her Feet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is Salman Rushdie's celebration of Americana, a brilliant examination of what the world means to America, and what America means to the world. It's his most gripping, boldest and most imaginative novel to date — an account of the intimate and flawed encounter between the East and West.

Synopsis:

Vina Aspara, a famous and much-loved singer, is caught up in a devastating earthquake and never seen again. This is her story, and that of Ormus Cama, the lover who finds, loses, seeks and again finds her throughout his extraordinary life in music. It is narrated by Ormus's childhood friend, Rai.

Synopsis:

Rushdie's rock 'n' roll novel, now reissued.
