Synopsis:

Malik Solanka, historian of ideas and world-famous dollmaker, steps out of his life one day, abandons his family in London without a word of explanation, and flees for New York. There's a fury within him, and he fears he has become dangerous to those he loves. He arrives in New York at a time of unprecedented plenty, in the highest hour of America's wealth and power, seeking to "erase" himself. But fury is all around him.

Fury is a work of explosive energy, at once a pitiless and pitch-black comedy, a profoundly disturbing inquiry into the darkest side of human nature, and a love story of mesmerizing force. It is also an astonishing portrait of New York. Not since the Bombay of Midnight's Children have a time and place been so intensely and accurately captured in a novel.


Review:

"[T]he book's promising beginning is soon drowned out by more typically Rushdian overkill: the cacophony of voices, plots, opinions, allegory, puns, magic realism, multicultural mythology, historical clues, and pop-culture references he has never attempted to edit. He cannot trust the story he is telling to hold its own. The point, for him, is not the tale he tells but the sound of his own raucous and frequently hysterical voice raised in its telling."

Brooke Allen, Atlantic Monthly, September 2001

Review:

"[A] novel that exhausts negative superlatives, that is likely to make even its most charitable readers furious....[M]ost of it is relentlessly set in the New York of last year, and records, as if offering the pages of a calendar, the city's large and small events....Flourishing its glamorous congestion, FURY is immediately obsolete; its trivia tattoo has already faded....In general, Rushdie's observations pound a wilderness between incredibility and banality."

James Wood, New Republic, 09/24/2001

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK Salman Rushdie s great grasp of the human tragicomedy-its dimensions, its absurdities and horrors-has made him one of the most intelligent fiction writers in the English language. -Gail Caldwell, The Boston Globe Fury is a profoundly, ecstatically affirmative work of fiction. It reaffirms Rushdie s standing . . . at the very front rank of contemporary literary novelists. - Baltimore Sun Malik Solanka, historian of ideas and world-famous dollmaker, steps out of his life one day, abandons his family in London without a word of explanation, and flees for New York. There s a fury within him, and he fears he has become dangerous to those he loves.

An astonishing work of explosive energy, Fury is by turns a pitiless and pitch-black comedy, a love story of mesmerizing force, and a disturbing inquiry into the darkest side of human nature. Rushdie s ideas-about society, about culture, about politics-are embedded in his stories and in the interlocking momentum with which he tells them. . . . All of Rushdie s synthesizing energy, the way he brings together ancient myth and old story, contemporary incident and archetypal emotion, transfigures reason into a waking dream. - Los Angeles Times Book Review Well, here it is, then, his first 3-D, full-volume American novel, finger-snapping, wildly stupefying, often slyly funny, red-blooded and red-toothed. [Fury] twinkles brightly in tragicomic passages. - The Miami Herald Cover design: Cover illustration: Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780679783503
