A non fiction book by D C R A Goonetilleke
In this study of Salman Rushdie, currently one of the world's most controversial writers, Goonetilleke examines "the Rushdie affair", but his focus is on Rushdie as a novelist. He considers Rushdie's fiction as art, tracing the collage of autobiographical and historical elements, and analyzes Rushdie's complex position as a migrant writer, drawing on the cultural riches of two hemispheres while not belonging fully to either.
