Vina Apsara, a famous and much-loved singer, is caught up in a devastating earthquake and never seen again by human eyes. This is her story and that of Ormus Cama, the lover who finds, loses, seeks, and again find her, over and over, throughout his own extraordinary life in music. Their epic romance is narrated by Ormus' childhood friend and Vina's sometime lover, the photographer Rai. Around these 3 the uncertain world itself is beginning to tremble and break: cracks and tears have begun to appear in the fabric of the real. The Ground Beneath Her Feet is Salman Rushdie's boldest imaginative act, a vision of our shaken, mutating times, and a brilliant remaking of the Orpheus myth. Rushdie is also the author of Midnight's Children and The Satanic Verses. Download and start listening now!
