'This is a triumphant book... Disdainful of the earthbound, imperious, wilful, but also majestic, these collected essays are about the struggle of a writer to find his singular, untouched voice.'

'Read every page of this book; better still, re-read them. The invocation means no hardship, since every true reader must surely be captivated by Rushdie's masterful invention and ease, the flow of wit and insight and passion...

Michael Foot, Observer

'Playful, profound and provocative... Rushdie holds nothing back.'
New York Newsday
