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 55, 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. Download and start listening now!

    " Rushdie displays a bit of range that we did not know he possessed and comes up with his most accessible and enjoyable novel. "

    " Rushdie seems to have lost his fire during his forced exile. There is anger here - but inconclusive anger "

    " Fury? A better title might be Impotence, Poor Decision Making or Whiny Discontent, and the old author has a beautiful women chasing him. Uggggggh. Only a few stylistic twists save this one from one star. "
