  • The extraordinary alchemy of Midnight’s Children was its miraculous fusion of the fantastical and the historical.

  • Rushdie’s novel took a post-colonial “empire fights back” spirit, and a deep personal understanding of the politics of Indian partition, and exploded them into something teeming with imaginative life… He inhabits a hybrid consciousness, with a telepathic connection to the other children of midnight, and tells its stories for all he is worth.

    Tim Adams, Observer
  • One of the most important books to come out of the English-speaking world in this generation
