Very nice, clean copy SIGNED BY SALMAN RUSHDIE with owner's name on title page, too. Hardcover with dust jacket. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. N° de réf. du libraire 040647
Synopsis : A rickshaw driver dreams of being a Bombay movie star; Indian diplomats, who as childhood friends hatched Star Trek fantasies, must boldly go into a hidden universe of conspiracy and violence; and Hamlet's jester is caught up in murderous intrigues. In Rushdie's hybrid world, an Indian guru can be a redheaded Welshman, while Christopher Columbus is an immigrant, dreaming of Western glory. Rushdie allows himself, like his characters, to be pulled now in one direction, then in another. Yet he remains a writer who insists on our cultural complexity; who, rising beyond ideology, refuses to choose between East and West and embraces the world.
Critique: "A vindication of the rights of fiction...His story-telling powers are alive and well - his ingenuity, wit, charm and his restless talent for the unexpected" Sunday Times "Literary magic" Literary Review "The most original imagination writing today" Nadine Gordimer "Scheherazade meets Star Trek in these well-honed miniatures form the maestro of the cross-cultural black-buster" Independent "Home in neither, but poised somewhere in between - Salman Rushdie's volume of short stories on this theme is deft, inventive, entertaining" Financial Times
