i Librarian s Note Alternate cover edition for ISBN a href https www goodreads com book show shame rel nofollow a i br br Omar Khayyam Shakil had three mothers who shared everything They shared the symptoms of pregnancy they shared the son that they all claim to have borne on the same night Raised at their six breasts Omar s mothers teach him to live a life without shame And it is training that proves very useful when he leaves his mothers fortress and makes the fateful mistake of falling in love For he finds himself an unwitting player in an ongoing duel between the families of two men one a celebrated wager of war the other a debauched lover of pleasure living in a world caught between honour and humiliation where a moment of shame could prove fatal, From one of the greatest writers of our time the most spellbinding entertaining wildly imaginative novel of his great career which blends history and myth with tremendous philosophical depth A masterful mesmerizing modern tale about worlds dangerously colliding the monsters that are unleashed when reason recedes and a beautiful testament to the power of love and humanity in chaotic times br br Inspired by years of storytelling yet rooted in the concerns of our present moment this is a spectacular achievement enchanting both very funny and terrifying It is narrated by our descendants years hence looking back on The War of the Worlds that began with the time of the strangenesses a simple gardener begins to levitate a baby is born with the unnerving ability to detect corruption in people the ghosts of two long dead philosophers begin arguing once more and storms pummel New York so hard that a crack appears in the universe letting in the destructive djinns of myth as well as some graphic superheroes Nothing less than the survival of our world is at stake Only one a djinn princess who centuries before had learned to love humankind resolves to help us in the face of dynastic intrigue she raises an army composed of her semi magical great great etc grandchildren a motley crew of endearing characters who come together to save the world in a battle waged for nights or to be precise two years eight months and twenty eight nights, i Alternate cover for this ISBN can be found a href https www goodreads com book show the moor s last sigh rel nofollow here a i br br Moraes Moor Zogoiby is a high born crossbreed the last surviving scion of a dynasty of Cochinise spice merchants and crime lords He is also a compulsive storyteller and an exile As he travels a route that takes him from India to Spain he leaves behind a labyrinthine tale of mad passions and volcanic family hatreds of titanic matriarchs and their mesmerised offspring of premature deaths and curses that strike beyond the grave i The Moor s Last Sigh i is a spectacularly ambitious funny satirical and compassionate novel It is a love song to a vanishing world but also its last hurrah br br from the back cover, The ground shifts repeatedly beneath the reader s feet during the course of Salman Rushdie s sixth novel a riff on the Orpheus and Eurydice myth set in the high octane world of rock amp roll Readers get their first clues early on that the universe Rushdie is creating here is not quite the one we know Jesse Aron Parker for example wrote i Heartbreak Hotel i Carly Simon and Guinevere Garfunkel sang i Bridge over Troubled Water i and Shirley Jones and Gordon McRae starred in i South Pacific i And as the novel progresses Rushdie adds unmistakable elements of science fiction to his already patented magical realism with occasionally uneven results br br Rushdie s cunning musician is Ormus Cana the Bombay born founder of the most popular group in the world Ormus s Eurydice and lead singer is Vina Apsara the daughter of a Greek American woman and an Indian father who abandoned the family What these two share besides amazing musical talent is a decidedly twisted family life Ormus s twin brother died at birth and communicates to him from the other side his older brothers also twins are respectively brain damaged and a serial killer Vina on the other hand grew up in rural West Virginia where she returned home one day to find her stepfather and sisters shot to death and her mother hanging from a rafter in the barn No wonder these two believe they were made for each other br br Narrated by Rai Merchant a childhood friend of both Vina and Ormus i The Ground Beneath Her Feet i begins with a terrible earthquake in that swallows Vina whole then moves back in time to chronicle the tangled histories of all the main characters and a host of minor ones as well Rushdie s canvas is huge stretching from India to London to New York and beyond and there s plenty of room for him to punctuate this epic tale with pointed commentary on his own situation Muslim born Rai for example remarks that i my parents gave me the gift of irreligion of growing up without bothering to ask people what gods they held dear You may argue that the gift was a poisoned chalice but even if so that s a cup from which I d happily drink again i br br Despite earthquakes heartbreaks and a rip in the time space continuum i The Ground Beneath Her Feet i may be the most optimistic accessible novel Rushdie has yet written
