Salman Rushdie is one of the most widely discussed but also one of the most generally misunderstood of contemporary writers. This study provides a balanced view by approaching Rushdie's fiction in terms of its dual responsibility to the 'found' world of historical circumstance and to the 'made' world of the imagination. His novels are seen as characteristic texts for our times, negotiating between different (often conflicting) cultures, dissonant discourses, heterogeneous literary conventions, and incommensurable conceptions of truth. As such, they offer special risks and rewards to the reader. Damian Grant also provides an account of the complex issues raised by the worldwide response to The Satanic Verses and this new edition covers all of Rushdie's work up to the present.
