In this Readers' Guide, David Smale traces the critical reception of this fascinating writer by examining the changing responses to his two best-known works. As a novelist and icon, Rushdie has embraced both 'popular' and 'high' culture; reflecting this, the Guide brings together both academic criticism and journalism to investigate the passions and preoccupations of Rushdie's many critics, steering the reader through the inflamed debates and rhetoric surrounding this much admired but controversial author.

User Review  - Vibha - Goodreads

You read few pages, you will know that this is going to be one hell of a good book and that is what it was. It is not particularly pacy but there were times when I wanted to know more an finish the chapter but sometimes I could just close the book to be read later. Overall good read. Read full review
