Khomeini would've had more success if he'd marketed himself as "The Ayatollah of Rock and Rollah". I'm just saying.

Ez:

Lost in all the hubbub and smart set adulation is that Rushdie is an incredible storyteller--Midnight's Children ranks among the greatest books I've ever read. Rushdie's next, Shalimar the Clown--about down-and-outers in Persia/Iran--is coming out in the fall. Rushdie's editor at Random House, Daniel Menaker, a former fiction editor at The New Yorker, who's had a remarkable run in recent months with such authors as Tony Hendra and Scott Simon is the perfect match for Rushdie. This should be a return to peak form for Rushdie.

My advice? Add Shalimar to your wish list, pronto.

What Jim said. Rushdie is a giant.

Return to form?

Rushdie's collection of articles and short stories is great. Fury was kinda shortish, but I loved the whole concept of an on-line multimedia community masterpiece (and I'm helping to develop one currently).

The Ground Beneath Her Feet is my favorite book of all time.

For me, there's no lost form:p
