  • Salman Rushdie is one of the greatest writers of our age; he is a giant of literature.

    Neil Gaiman
  • Rushdie is vital, expansive, the critic as storyteller, championing his subjects with gusto... Rushdie is a still a writer to be reckoned with.

    Claire Lowdon, Times Literary Supplement
  • Powerful... Languages of Truth feels like essential reading in this time, reminding us that the stories we have told each other over millennia are universal, even if this shared heritage is often lost or forgotten in today's angry, fractured world.

    Nilanjana Roy, Financial Times
  • Probably the best nonfiction he [Rushdie] has written in years... Rushdie is happy to record just what he sees and feels. You sense that he has arrived somewhere new...a sign of good things to come.

    Abhrajyoti Chakraborty, Guardian
  • Rushdie's writing is erudite and full of sympathy, brimming with insight and wit . . . Fans will be delighted . . . [A] mesmerizing collection.

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • Wide-ranging nonfiction pieces by the distinguished novelist, unified by his commitment to artistic freedom and his adamant opposition to censorship in any form . . . Formidably erudite, engagingly passionate, and endlessly informative: a literary treat.

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
  • Enchanting reading... Rushdie is worth listening to.

    Fred Kelly, Tablet
