Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The novel that set the stage for his modern classic, The Satanic Verses, Shame is Salman Rushdies phantasmagoric epic of an unnamed country that is “not quite Pakistan.” In this dazzling tale of an ongoing duel between the families of two men-one a celebrated wager of war, the other a debauched lover of pleasure-Rushdie brilliantly portrays a world caught between honor and humiliation-“shamelessness, shame: the roots of violence.” Shame is an astonishing story that grows more timely by the day.

About the Author

Salman Rushdie is the author of seven novels, including The Satanic Verses, The Ground Beneath Her Feet and Midnights Children for which he won the Booker Prize and the “Booker of Bookers.”
