Reading Group Guide

The questions, discussion topics, and author biography that follow are intended to enhance your group's reading of Salman Rushdie's The Moor's Last Sigh. We hope they will introduce a number of new angles from which to examine Rushdie's fabulous and philosophic vision of his native India, a panorama condensed within the story of one family and its last surviving member, Moraes Zogoiby, known as "the Moor."

One of the most beautifully written books it has ever been my pleasure to read. It took ages, as I savored each word, set into its sentence like a gemstone into jewelry. Rushdie is a master storyteller, and a meticulous craftsman.

No surprises in this story... the telling has lots of twists but the turns are seen well in advance. A beautiful telling, nonetheless. Language so magical one forgives the predictable. Indian history, folklore and drama. I am not such a fool to take this fictional account as gospel, however I was motivated to go looking for more information about events and figures.

The one foreshadowing I cannot forgive involves a "walkman" and its use as a tool of destruction. Too mundane a plot my dear Mr. Rushdie!
