Product description

Review

"Shame is and is not about Pakistan, that invented, imaginary country... The theme is shame and shamelessness, born from the violence which is modern history. Revelation and obscurity, affairs of honour, blushings of all parts, the recession of erotic life, the open violence of public life, create the extraordinary Rushdie mood." -- Malcolm Bradbury, "The Guardian" "A pitch black comedy of public life and historical imperatives." -- "The Times" "From the Trade Paperback edition."

Book Description

A masterful combination of history, myth, art, language, politics and religion from this legendary writer.
