Praise for Salman Rushdie
"Joseph Anton is a splendid book, the finest new memoir to cross my desk in many a year."--Jonathan Yardley, "Washington Post"
"Rushdie's ideas--about society, about culture, about politics--are embedded in his stories and in the interlocking momentum with which he tells them. . . . All of Rushdie's synthesizing energy, the way he brings together ancient myth and old story, contemporary incident and archetypal emotion, transfigures reason into a waking dream."--"Los Angeles Times Book Review"
"Everywhere [Rushdie] takes us there is both love and war, in strange and terrifying combinations, painted in swaying, swirling, world-eating prose that annihilates the borders between East and West, love and hate, private lives and the history they make."--"Time"
"Swift in "Gulliver's Travels, "Voltaire in "Candide, "Sterne in "Tristram Shandy" . . . Salman Rushdie, it seems to me, is very much a latter-day member of their company."--"The New York Times Book Review"
"The most original imagination writing today."--Nadine Gordimershow more
