Description

Inextricably linked with the fatwa called against its author in the wake of the novel's publication, The Satanic Verses is, beyond that, a rich showcase for Salman Rushdie's comic sensibilities, cultural observations, and unparalleled mastery of language. The tale of an Indian film star and a Bombay expatriate, Rushdie's masterpiece was deservedly honored with the Whitbread Prize. "Swift's Gulliver's Travels, Voltaire's Candide . [Rushdie] is very much a latter-day member of their company."-New York Times Book Review
