ACCLAIM FOR Salman Rushdie’s. No one writes more convincingly of the tug between old and new, home and the allure of the unknown. These stories are recounted with wit and make for entirely enjoyable reading. Rushdie is an author who can do anything with words.
Selected by Salman Rushdie and Elizabeth West, these novel excerpts, stories, and memoirs illuminate wonderful writing by authors often overlooked in the West. Thirty-two selections by Indian authors writing in English over the past half-century. Salman Rushdie at his most candid, impassioned, and incisive-Imaginary Homelands is an important and moving record of one writer's intellectual and personal odyssey. Haroun & The Sea Of Stories.

East, West is a collection of nine stories that reveal the oceanic distances and the unexpected intimacies between East and West. Mr. Rushdie, one suspects, would rather have his work discussed purely as literature, without reference to the unhappy history that has plagued him, but sometimes the stories themselves make it difficult to ignore the story of their author. More than any other English writer, Rushdie makes the page sing with his prose.

But I got my chance this time and I went with it. Honestly I was a little nervous about how I would take to Salman Rushdie's writing style.

Fawning yet fearless; possessed of a certain saucy vulgarity, he gets away with it by virtue of his confidence-man’s charm. sed; the sea-dog raffishness wears a little thin. It is of what?Obvious answers first. He hopes for preferment. He wants to tie the Queen’s favour to his helmet, like a knight in a romance.
