Product description


'Rushdie combines the wonder of fairy tale with the grittiness of hard, political realism'. -- The Observer

'Rushdie is back on tip-top form with his inimitable high-octane prose.' -- Tatler Magazine

'Rushdie's greatest novel since 'The Satanic Verses'... There are few writers who can pull off such an act...transparent, extraordinary writing.' -- Los Angeles Times

'Shalimar the Clown finds [Rushdie]...writing at his best.' -- Evening Standard

'Shalimar...dramatises the fusion of personal calamity and - legitimate - political complaint into a volatile, and deadly, mixture of motives.' -- The Independent

'The book is a rare highwire act, a literary thriller.' -- Financial Times Magazine

'This is masterful fiction, to be sure, but, also and especially, all too real.' -- Newsweek International

'a magical-realist masterpiece that equals, and arguably surpasses, the achievements of 'Midnight's Children', 'Shame' and 'The Moor's Last Sigh'.' -- Kirkus

‘Like his best work, it traverses tumultuous passages of national history'. -- Philip Hensher, Telegraph

‘a book about the dark side of storytelling…reminds us that nationhood and identity are not one and the same’. -- David Robinson, The Scotsman
