The world renowned author of The Satanic Verses and The Ground beneath Her Feet, Salman Rushdie is a Whitbread Award winner and recipient of the Booker Prize. His first truly American novel, Fury is a metaphorically rich black comedy that reflects the pressure-cooker of modern life.

Malik Solanka, irascible doll-maker and retired historian of ideas, suffers the pain of wanting without knowing exactly what it is he wants. Aged fifty-five, he is at once filled with melancholy and surging rage—so much so that he fears for the safety of his wife and young son.

Escaping to New York City and its crowded streets, Malik seeks to extinguish himself and forget the life he left behind in London. It is here, in this void of virtual anonymity, that he falls in love again. In battle for possession of his very soul, Malik exemplifies the human need for connection. This unabridged recording features author Salman Rushdie’s own intensely powerful narration.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Rushdie’s ideas—about society, about culture, about politics—are embedded in his stories and in the interlocking momentum with which he tells them. His reflective power lies in the way his fiction simply unfolds. All of Rushdie’s synthesizing energy, the way he brings together ancient myth and old story, contemporary incident and archetypal emotion, transfigures reason into a waking dream.”

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “Salman Rushdie’s great grasp of the human tragicomedy—its dimensions, its absurdities and horrors—has made him one of the most intelligent fiction writers in the English language.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Finger-snapping, wildly stupefying, often slyly funny, red-blooded and red-toothed. [Fury] twinkles brightly.”

    Miami Herald
