The experience of being uprooted fascinates Rushdie, and his fiction is contextualised, informed and enriched by his experience of displacement as well as exile.

This book makes an attempt to critically examine Rushdie’s engagement with the history, politics and identity of the Indian subcontinent, from his distinct location of a postcolonial migrant writer drawing culturally from multiple spaces, even as he distinctively belongs to none. A close textual examination of Rushdie’s major fictional work considers how a selection of thematic and structural patterns can be traced in the corpus of his major fiction – Midnight’s Children (1981), Shame (1983), The Moor’s Last Sigh (1995), The Ground Beneath Her Feet (1999), Fury (2001) and Shalimar the Clown (2005). His oeuvre is appraised in the context of post-colonialism and postmodernism. Linguistic ebullience cannot be ignored in the writing of Rushdie. This effort therefore takes into account the manner in which he reinvigorates narrative conventions and the English language. The study of a living writer offers a unique challenge, more so when that writer happens to be one as polemical as Salman Rushdie.
