Reviews

When Flapping Eagle, the immortal hero of this fantasy, tires of existence, he travels to Calf Island, home of Grimus, the man who granted him eternal life, and shakes things up a bit. In its 1979 review, PW termed this an ``artful first novel. . . . There are a few passages where Rushdie seems to be trying too hard, but in general, after a slow start, the book takes off like Flapping Eagle's namesake.'' (Jan.)

"Thunderous and touching" Financial Times "Engrossing and wonderful" Los Angeles Times "Ambitious, strikingly confident" Times Literary Supplement "Stimulating, funny, a thoroughly good read" Harpers & Queen "A mixture of science fiction and folktale, past and future, primitive and present day... Grimus is a parallel form of life, and conjuring of an alternative society" Financial Times
