Sir Salman Rushdie has received many awards for his writing, including the European Union's Aristeion Prize for Literature. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres. In 1993 Midnight's Children was judged to be the 'Booker of Bookers', the best novel to have won the Booker Prize in its first 25 years. In June 2007 he received a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours.
" 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
