Blackwell North Amer
The Moor evokes his family's often grotesque but compulsively moving fortunes and the lost world of possibilities embodied by India in this century. His is a tale of premature deaths and family rifts, of thwarted loves and mad passions, of secrecy and greed, of power and money, and of the even more morally dubious seductions and mysteries of art.

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.
