Synopsis: SATANIC VERSES, THE

No book in modern times has matched the uproar sparked by Salman Rushdie's "The Satanic Verses", which earned its author a death sentence. Furor aside, it is a marvelously erudite study of good and evil, a feast of language served up by a writer at the height of his powers, and a rollicking comic fable. The book begins with two Indians, Gibreel Farishta ("for fifteen years the biggest star in the history of the Indian movies") and Saladin Chamcha, a Bombay expatriate returning from his first visit to his homeland in 15 years, plummeting from the sky after the explosion of their jetliner, and proceeds through a series of metamorphoses, dreams and revelations. Rushdie's powers of invention are astonishing in this Whitbread Prize winner.

RUSHDIE, SALMAN

about author

Born on June 19, 1947, in Bombay (now Mumbai), India, Salman Rushdie was British-Indian novelist. The only son of a University of Cambridge-educated businessman and school teacher in Bombay, Rushdie was educated at a Bombay private school before attending The Rugby School, a boarding school in Warwickshire, England. He went on to attend King's College at the University of Cambridge, where he studied history. After graduating, he spent time working in television and a brief period as a copywriter for an advertising agency, before pursuing a career as a writer. His first novel, Grimus, was published in 1975, followed by other notable works, including Midnight's Children (1981) and Shame (1983). Rushdie's fourth novel, The Satanic Verses (1988), led to accusations of blasphemy against Islam, and he was subsequently forced to go into hiding under the protection of the British government.
