A propos de cet article

First Edition (first printing). The second novel by the author of THE SATANIC VERSES and SHAME, a story with epic sweep which follows twin protagonists in an evocation of a vast and complicated land and its people -- modern India. Winner of the Booker Prize and subsequently selected as the winner of the "Booker of Bookers." Also winner of the James Tate Black Memorial Book Prize and the English Speaking Union Literary Award. Due to a delay in the British publication process, this American Edition was the true first. Fine/Fine. One short closed tear to the front dust jacket panel, else an exceptionally clean, crisp copy with no fading to the maroon/pink dust jacket spine. Signed by Rushdie on the title page.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Winner of the Man Booker Prize 1981 and the Booker of Booker Prize 2008 as best novel ever to win the Man Booker Prize, this is Rushdie's most loved book available for the first time in audio. Born at the stroke of midnight at the exact moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is a special child. However, this coincidence of birth has consequences he is not prepared for: telepathic powers connect him with 1,000 other 'midnight's children' all of whom are endowed with unusual gifts. Inextricably linked to his nation, Saleem's story is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirrors the course of modern India at its most impossible and glorious. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.

Synopsis:

Introduction by Anita Desai

Saleem Sinai was born at midnight, the midnight of India's independence, and finds himself mysteriously 'handcuffed to history' by the coincidence. He is one of 1,001 children born at the midnight hour, each of them endowed with an extraordinary talent -- and whose privilege and curse it is to be both master and victims of their times. Through Saleem's gifts -- inner voices and a wildly sensitive sense of smell -- we are drawn into a fascinating family saga set against the vast, colourful background of the India of this century.
