What the Critics Say

“Sometimes pensive, sometimes marvelously funny, always lucid essays, reviews, and occasional pieces by the renowned Anglo-Indian novelist.” (Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review)
“This book is full of so much that is ‘relevant’ that the very word seems inadequate.” (Los Angeles Times)
“The essays crackle with [Rushdie’s] enthusiasm, humor, and intelligence.” (The Miami Herald)

Salman 5 - Narrator 0

Salman Rushdie is in great form but for me this book is unlistenable in all but very short bursts because of the narrator's grating voice with it's sarcastic tone and almost hostile delivery. It is a crime because the writing is excellent. The book is short and I would much rather have heard the author's own voice especially since these are essays. The content deserves 5-stars but I can only give it one... I don't know if I will ever get fully through it and wish I had not purchased it.
