    Review quote
    "Extraordinary . . . one of the most important [novels] to come out of the English-speaking world in this generation." -The New York Review of Books "The literary map of India is about to be redrawn. . . . Midnight's Children sounds like a continent finding its voice." -The New York Times "In Salman Rushdie, India has produced a glittering novelist- one with startling imaginative and intellectual resources, a master of perpetual storytelling." -The New Yorker "A marvelous epic . . . Rushdie's prose snaps into playback and flash-forward . . . stopping on images, vistas, and characters of unforgettable presence. Their range is as rich as India herself." -Newsweek "Burgeons with life, with exuberance and fantasy . . . Rushdie is a writer of courage, impressive strength, and sheer stylistic brilliance." -The Washington Post Book World "Pure story-an ebullient, wildly clowning, satirical, descriptively witty charge of energy." -Chicago Sun-Times
