Reviews

"[A] modern masterpiece . . . telling a story full of wonder and leaving you marveling at how it ever came out of the author's head."--Associated Press "Wildly satiric and yet piercingly real . . . If F. Scott Fitzgerald, Homer, Euripides, and Shakespeare collaborated on a contemporary fall-of-an-empire epic set in New York City, the result would be The Golden House."--Poets & Writers "A tonic addition to American--no, world!--literature . . . a Greek tragedy with Indian roots and New York coordinates."--San Francisco Chronicle "A recognizably Rushdie novel in its playfulness, its verbal jousting, its audacious bravado, its unapologetic erudition, and its sheer, dazzling brilliance."--The Boston Globe "A joy to read . . . clever, intimidating, jocund, and electrifying."--Chicago Review of Books "The Golden House . . . ranks among Rushdie's most ambitious and provocative books [and] displays the quicksilver wit and playful storytelling of Rushdie's best work."--USA Today "From Nero to Obama, via The Godfather . . . The veteran novelist blends ancient history and myth with popular culture, crime caper and film techniques to fashion a morality tale for today."--The Guardian "Vivid and appealing."--The Week "A tale of identity, reinvention, truth (and lies), and terror, The Golden House captures the climate of American politics and culture from the Obama era to today."--BuzzFeed "The Golden House is a brilliant examination of the times we are living in today. A must read!"--PopSugar "Rushdie writes with a Dickensian exuberance, always full of humor as well as striking scornful, tragic notes."--The London Evening Standard "Intelligent and darkly funny . . . with a raw political edge."--The Times (UK) "Powerful. . . . The great strength of The Golden House is Rushdie's ability to balance the fairy tale tone of the story with gritty realities."--The Toronto Star "Ambitious and rewarding."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A novel grounded in historical fact yet rife with Rushdie's signature imaginative prowess."--Library Journal (starred review) "A ravishingly well-told, deeply knowledgeable, magnificently insightful, and righteously outraged epic which pos-es timeless questions about the human condition."--Booklist (starred review) "A sort of Great Gatsby for our time: everyone is implicated, no one is innocent, and no one comes out unscathed."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
