India's first half-century of independence has witnessed the emergence of a glittering new literature. To coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of that independence, Owl Books is proud to present a major anthology of the best of this dazzling body of writing, selected by Salman Rushdie and Elizabeth West. A whole tumultuous continent is reflected here: the billion faces of India, comic and tragic, harsh and beautiful, delicate and grotesque. It is a magic mirror held up to what is hidden as well as what is shown, to dreams and nightmares, to the secret truths of history and of the human heart.

Read information about the authorSir Ahmed Salman Rushdie is a novelist and essayist. Much of his early fiction is set at least partly on the Indian subcontinent. His style is often classified as magical realism, while a dominant theme of his work is the story of the many connections, disruptions and migrations between the Eastern and Western world.
His fourth novel, The Satanic Verses, led to protests from Muslims in several countries, some of which were violent. Faced with death threats and a fatwa (religious edict) issued by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, then Supreme Leader of Iran, which called for him to be killed, he spent nearly a decade largely underground, appearing in public only sporadically. In June 2007, he was appointed a Knight Bachelor for "services to literature", which "thrilled and humbled" him. In 2007, he began a five-year term as Distinguished Writer in Residence at Emory University.
