Rate this:
Winner of England's prestigious Whitbread Ward, Rushdie's first novel in seven years is a peppery melange of genres: a deliciously inventive family saga; a subversive alternate history of modern India; a fairy tale as inexhaustibly imagined as any in The Arabian Nights; and a book of ideas on topics from art to ethnicity, from religious fanaticism to the terrifying power of love.
Publisher: Toronto : Alfred A. Knopf Canada, 1995.

This is Salman Rushdie at his best. He takes you yonder, some magical reality, away from the surface of this earth, yet remains understandable, with the down to earth clarity, uncharacteristic (to me), of his other novels like Haroun and and the sea of stories, Satanic verses and Mid-Night's Children. I find it hard to select reading materials, after reading any Salman Rushdie. In this i learn that, "Every love is good, even defeated love..."

The destruction of an empire as told by one of its fallen sons,an abomination everyone will abuse. While in certain aspects similar to Rushdie equally masterful book Shame , The Moors Last Sigh sheds the skin of poetry that Shame wore so confidently. it does steal anything away fromit, on the contrary, its adherence to reality imbues upon its prose a completly unique, and no less enjoyable quality. if you have yet to taste Rushdies delicacies of literature, i would recommend this as perfect entree.
