Reviews

  • It is an astute, gleeful, political tale in which Rushdie dazzles with his prodigious gift for satire.

    Guardian
  • Salman Rushdie has earned the right to be called one of our great story tellers

    Observer
  • There can seldom have been so robust and baroque an incarnation of the political novel as Shame. It can be read as a fable, polemic or excoriation; as history or as fiction... This is the novel as myth and as satire

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Shame is every bit as good as Midnight's Children. It is a pitch-black comedy of public life and historical imperatives

    The Times
  • Salman Rushdie is a magnificent writer. He has a free-ranging imagination and a coarse, strong wit. He attackes language with energy and without constraint
