Reviews

" Extraordinary . . . one of the most important [novels] to come out of the English-speaking world in this generation." - The New York Review of Books " The literary map of India is about to be redrawn. . . . Midnight's Children sounds like a continent finding its voice." - The New York Times " In Salman Rushdie, India has produced a glittering novelist- one with startling imaginative and intellectual resources, a master of perpetual storytelling." - The New Yorker " A marvelous epic . . . Rushdie's prose snaps into playback and flash-forward . . . stopping on images, vistas, and characters of unforgettable presence. Their range is as rich as India herself." - Newsweek " Burgeons with life, with exuberance and fantasy . . . Rushdie is a writer of courage, impressive strength, and sheer stylistic brilliance." - The Washington Post Book World " Pure story- an ebullient, wildly clowning, satirical, descriptively witty charge of energy." - Chicago Sun-Times
