Rushdie without prentention,
This review is from: The Black Album (Faber Fiction Classics) (Paperback)
Compared to "The Buddha of suburbia", I felt "The black album" was a little overconstructed, self-conscious and the plot was maybe a bit farfetched. It lacked some of the lightness and humour which I really liked in "The Buddha..."
Still, this is a fine novel about identity and multiculturalism. Clever, straightforward, sparkling.
