Synopsis

Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses tells the tale of a hijacked jetliner that explodes above the English Channel. Through the falling debris, two figures, Gibreel Farishta, the biggest star in India, and Saladin Chamcha, an expatriate returning from his first visit to Bombay in fifteen years, plummet from the sky, washing up on the snow-covered sands of an English beach, and proceed through a series of metamorphoses, dreams, and revelations. Whitbread Award for Best Novel (1988)

great book. i really appreciate the fluidity of rushdie's style. i read this with a group, and the major complaints from others in the group were the surreal quality and a basic ignorance of the information related to the british-indian experience. there's more to be said, but the saying of it would not do the book justice. if you're not familiar with british-indian relations and post-colonialism, get over it and check this book out.

About Becker's Books

Tucked away in a sleepy neighborhood just outside the Loop on the West side of Houston, Becker's Books is one of Houston's largest bookstores by inventory, although you wouldn't know it when you pull up. After walking around however, you'll find what you didn't even know you were looking for. May customers leave hours later, smiling in spite of themselves with an armful of books, giving credence to what any J.R.R. Tolkien fans know to be true "not all who wander are lost."
