Product description

Review

"A brilliant, fascinating, generous novel...wonderful" (Guardian)

"A wild and whirling novel" (Observer)

"For Rushdie, as for the artists he writes about, the pen is a magician's wand. There is more magic than realism in this latest novel. But it is, I think, one of his best. If The Enchantress of Florence doesn't win this year's Man Booker I'll curry my proof copy and eat it" (Financial Times)

"My first desire on finishing it was to go back and re-read it. Like all of Rushdie's work, the playfulness, the passion, the erudition and the sensuousness go hand in hand. It's immensely rich...it's one of his best" (Scotsman)

"An exuberant mix of fantasy and history" (Daily Mail)

"[Rushdie] has a rare mastery of language, and when you read his work you cannot help but feel you are in the company of a mighty intelligence... Salman Rushdie is undoubtedly one of our greatest storytellers" (Herald)

"Mesmerising, picaresque... It is a boisterous tale piled high with sex and adventure and fantasy" (Tatler)

Review

`A less playful writer would get bogged down in this rich mix...but it is effervescent...in Rushdie's hands.'
