Synopses & Reviews
Paperback edition of Rushdie's first novel since "The Satanic Verses", and one of the most highly acclaimed novels of the decade so far. The skilfully crafted and many-layered tale of the only son of a wealthy Bombay family - describing his life of scandal and depravity, and his final redemption in a violent climax - it is already a resounding critical and commercial success, and this B-format edition should do very well.
'Moor' Zogoiby, only son of a wealthy, artistic Bombay family, finds himself at crisis point. After a tragic love affair, he plunges into a life of depravity in Bombay before leaving for involvement in financial scandal in London and, ultimately, violence in Spain. From the author of MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN.
