The Moor’s Last Sigh by Salman Rushdie

Booker Prize-winning author Salman Rushdie combines a ferociously witty family saga with a surreally imagined and sometimes blasphemous chronicle of modern India and flavors the mixture with peppery soliloquies on art, ethnicity, religious fanaticism, and the terrifying power of love. Moraes “Moor” Zogoiby, the last surviving scion of a dynasty of Cochinese spice merchants and crime lords, is also a compulsive storyteller and an exile. As he travels a route that takes him from India to Spain, he leaves behind a tale of mad passions and volcanic family hatreds, of titanic matriarchs and their mesmerized offspring, of premature deaths and curses that strike beyond the grave.

The Moor’s Last Sigh by Salman Rushdie is fierce, phantasmagorical…a huge, sprawling, exuberant novel.”–New York Times

The Moor’s Last Sigh by Salman Rushdie is one of Brian Eno’s favorite books.
