Reviews

"Mesmerizing . . . Rushdie's writing is erudite and full of sympathy, brimming with insight and wit: 'Literature has never lost sight of what our quarrelsome world is trying to force us to forget. Literature rejoices in contradiction.' Rushdie's fans will be delighted."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Wide-ranging nonfiction pieces by the distinguished novelist, unified by his commitment to artistic freedom and his adamant opposition to censorship in any form. . . . This collection . . . showcases his generous spirit, dedicated to illuminating the work of fellow artists and defending their right to unfettered creativity. . . . Engagingly passionate, and endlessly informative: a literary treat."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
