Overview

This book's critical approach offers an interpretation that seeks to illuminate Salman Rushdie's own struggle with religious identity. The focus on Rushdie's The Satanic Verses as a display of personal struggle transcends the post publication's controversy surrounding the novel. It also suggests a possible reconciliation between Islam and Rushdie himself. This work portrays Rushdie as a struggling individual confronting an investigation of his given religion, Islam. This study demonstrates how Rushdie rewrites the Islamic history and distorts some of its stories in the name of searching for a "deeper truth." It further deciphers Rushdie's Verses guiding readers through this colossal project and emphasizing the effect of the author's experimentation. Finally, it reveals the complex relationship between Rushdie and his work on the one hand and Rushdie and Islam on the other.
