Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The life of a man born at the moment of India's independence becomes inextricably linked to that of his nation and is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirror modern India's course, in a twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the Booker Prize-winning novel.


Review:

"An extraordinary novel...one of the most important to come out of the English speaking world in this generation."

V. S. Pritchett

Review:

"We have an epic in our laps. The obvious comparisons are to Gunter Grass in 'The Tin Drum' and to Gabriel Garcia Marquez in 'One Hundred Years of Solitude'. I am happy to oblige the obvious....I wish Mr. Rushdie's children, all of them orphans of history, would take over the world at dawn. This novel--exuberant, excessive, despairing--is special."

Robert Towers, New York Review of Books

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 25th. 211 x 128 mm. Brand New Book. Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time Winner of the Booker of Bookers Saleem Sinai is born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the very moment of India s independence. Greeted by fireworks displays, cheering crowds, and Prime Minister Nehru himself, Saleem grows up to learn the ominous consequences of this coincidence. His every act is mirrored and magnified in events that sway the course of national affairs; his health and well-being are inextricably bound to those of his nation; his life is inseparable, at times indistinguishable, from the history of his country. Perhaps most remarkable are the telepathic powers linking him with India s 1,000 other midnight s children, all born in that initial hour and endowed with magical gifts. This novel is at once a fascinating family saga and an astonishing evocation of a vast land and its people-a brilliant incarnation of the universal human comedy. Twenty-five years after its publication, Midnight s Children stands apart as both an epochal work of fiction and a brilliant performance by one of the great literary voices of our time.
