Summary
Sir Salman Rushdie is perhaps the most significant living novelist in English. His second novel, Midnight's Children , is regularly cited as the 'Booker of Bookers' and its impact is still being felt in world literature. His fourth novel, The Satanic Verses , is a very major, possibly epoch-defining work, which led to the 'Rushdie Affair', certainly the most significant literary-political event since the Second World War. Rushdie has continued to produce challenging fiction and controversial, thought-provoking non-fiction, and to be a presence on the world stage as a public intellectual. This collection brings together leading scholars, including Homi Bhabha, to provide an up-to-date critical guide to Rushdie's writing from his earliest works up to the most recent, including his sequel to Haroun and the Sea of Stories . Contributors offer new perspectives on key issues, including: Rushdie as a postcolonial writer; Rushdie as a postmodernist; his use and reuse of the canon; the 'Rushdie Affair'; his responses to 9/11 and to the 'War on Terror'; and issues of more complex philosophical weight arising from his fiction
