Literature & Fiction / Fiction / The Satanic Verses by Rushdie, Salman Rushdie, Salman            Review: No book in modern times has matched the uproar sparked by Salman Rushdies The Satanic Verses, which earned its author a fatwa from Irans Ayatollahs decreeing his death. Furore aside, it is a marvellously erudite study of good and evil, a feast of language served up by a writer at the height of his powers and a rollicking comic fable. The book begins with two Indians, Gibreel Farishta (for fifteen years the biggest star in the history of the Indian movies) and Saladin Chamcha, a Bombay expatriate returning from his first visit to his homeland in 15 years, plummeting from the sky after the explosion of their jetliner, and proceeds through a series of metamorphoses, dreams and revelations. Rushdies astonishing powers of invention are at their best in this Whitbread Prize winner.  Synopsis: First published in 1988 and now reissued in paperback, a contemporary novel about religion, from the author of MIDNIGHTS CHILDREN. Two Indian actors fall to Earth after their aeroplane is blown-up by terrorists, and they become involved in the battle between Good and Evil, as a great prophet wrestles with his faith and duty to God.Comments: pristine - as new- immediate availability-.
