The Moor's Last Sigh

In "The Moor's Last Sigh" Salman Rushdie revisits some of the same ground he covered in his greatest novel, "Midnight's Children". This book is narrated by Moraes Zogoiby, aka Moor, who speaks to us from a grave in Spain. Like Moor, Rushdie knows about a life spent in banishment from normal society - Rushdie because of the death sentence that followed The Satanic Verses, Moor because he ages at twice the rate of normal humans. Yet Moor's story of travail is bigger than Rushdie's; it encompasses a grand struggle between good and evil while Moor himself stands as allegory for Rushdie's home country of India. Filled with wordplay and ripe with humor, it is an epic work.

About the Author
Salman  Rushdie

Sir Ahmed Salman Rushdie (born 19 June 1947) is a British Indian novelist and essayist. He became famous with his second novel, Midnight's Children (1981), which brought to him the Booker Prize in 1981. Much of his early fiction is set on the Indian subcontinent. His style is often classified as magical realism mixed with historical fiction, and a dominant theme of his writing is the story of the many connections, disruptions and migrations between the Eastern and Western world.

If India was once the pearl in the crown of the ex-British Empire, the Bombay-born Salman Rushdie is a priceless jewel of his own in the realm of the contemporary English literature. Irreverent, fearless and constantly on the hunt for new, forever more enchanting universes to be discovered, the British-Indian writer has so far built, both through his literary opus magnum and through his public engagements, a reputation of a highly praised and highly controversial modern times genius. His second novel “Midnight Children’ (1981), a masterful depiction of the metamorphoses in post-colonial India, was immediately spotted by the critics and won the Man Booker prize. Upon the publishing of his “Satanic Verses” (1988), probably the most discussed and scandalous piece of modern prose, atrociously accused of being a blasphemy on the Muslim world, humanity turned over night into a pack of insatiable readers. “Shame” (1983) fuses magic and historical realism, in an almost indiscernible fashion, to create of tortured portrait of Pakistan. In 2007 Salman Rushdie was appointed a Knight Bachelor by Her Majesty Elizabeth II for “services in literature”.
