Shalimar the Clown book. Amidst all of this, I do think the novel maintains a certainly apolitical space. the guy is also writing about love and vengeance. There's so much to say about the emotional, human side of these characters, about the way people grow and change in the book.

Salman Rushdie misses out the appeal of the ordinary in his continent-crossing new novel, Shalimar the Clown .
Salman Rushdie misses out the appeal of the ordinary in his continent-crossing new novel, Shalimar the Clown, says Natasha Walter. The status of Salman Rushdie as a writer has hardly waned, despite the disappointments of his last two novels, and his status as a totemic figure for those who support freedom of expression in an increasingly divided world will never wane. This novel has been billed as his response to the threat of fundamentalism; it is hard to imagine a more imposing subject. But from the beginning the prose seems to be straining to live up to expectations, and slipping into hyperbole as a result.
Salman Rushdie's second novel, Midnight's Children, was awarded both the Booker Prize and the "Booker of Bookers," as the best novel to have won the Booker Prize in its first 25 years.
