9780099592716: Grimus

Flapping Eagle is a young Indian given the gift of immortality after drinking a magic fluid. Tiring of the burden of immortal life he sets off to find the mystical Calf Island, where he can rejoin the human race. His journey is peopled with strange assortments of characters, including the clumsy, loquacious Virgil Jones; his ugly, tragic companion, Dolores O'Toole; the wicked conjurer, Nicholas Deggle; the dainty, light-spirited Elfrida Gribb; and the enigmatic, pervasive Grimus, creator and controller of the mysterious island. An enticing combination of science fantasy, storytelling and folklore makes this first novel by Salman Rushdie an epic adventure truly unlike any other.

From the Back Cover:

Grimus is one of those novels some people will say is too good to be science fiction, even though it contains other universes, dimensional doorways, alien creatures and more than one madman.… A book to be read twice… Grimus is science fiction in the best sense of the word. It is literate, it is fun, it is meaningful and perhaps most important, it pushes the boundaries of the form outward.” -- The Los Angeles Times

“A fireworks of a book: beautiful, funny and endlessly surprising.” -- Ursula Le Guin

“Ambitious, strikingly confident.” -- The Times Literary Supplement

“A mixture of science fiction and folktale, past and future, primitive and present-day... Grimus is a parallel form of life, and conjuring of an alternative society.... Thunderous and touching.” -- Financial Times
