Description

Salman Rushdie is one of the most widely discussed but also one of the most generally misunderstood of contemporary writers. This study seeks to provide a balanced view by approaching Rushdie's fiction in terms of its dual responsibility to the 'found' world of historical circumstance and to the 'made' world of the imagination. The novels are seen as characteristic texts for our times, negotiating between different (often conflicting) cultures, dissonant discourses, heterogeneous literary conventions, incommensurable conceptions of truth. As such, they offer special risks and rewards to the reader. The book also provides an account of the complex issues raised by the world-wide response to The Satanic Verses that has become known as the 'Rushdie affair'.show more
