Editorial Reviews

“[Rushdie’s] turns and words are frequently exhilarating. There is…lilting pleasure in the collection.” New York Times Book Review
“This book is full of so much that is ‘relevant’ that the very word seems inadequate.” Los Angeles Times
“Every reader will find at least one essay in this collection that will bring anger and one that will cause audible laughter—and that is what makes Rushdie such an intelligent critic and thought-provoking writer.” Rocky Mountain News
“The essays crackle with [Rushdie’s] enthusiasm, humor, and intelligence.” Miami Herald
“Sometimes pensive, sometimes marvelously funny, always lucid essays, reviews, and occasional pieces by the renowned Anglo-Indian novelist.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
