Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Readers do not have to have read and be familiar with Rushdie's novels to read this book. Parashkevova gets her points across through concise and adept description of plots, narratives and characters, so that non-Rushdie readers can follow and appreciate Parashkevova's arguments. Those who have read the novels, however, will benefit from a different perspective on the worlds within […] On the whole, the book's writing is smart and densely packed, and its pace fast and unrelenting […]Salman Rushdie's cities provides a critical lens into the portrayal and evolution of cities and its inhabitants in Rushdie's novels. It masterfully combines literary criticism, urban theory and political commentary…” —Khairunnisa Ibrahim, University of Oxford, UGRG Book Review Series
