Salman Rushdie's "Midnight's Children" Summary

Salman Rushdie's "Midnight's Children" by Norbert Schurer

Continuum Contemporaries give readers accessible and informative introductions to some of the most popular, most acclaimed, and most influential novels of recent years. A team of contemporary fiction scholars from both sides of the Atlantic has been assembled to provide a through and readable analysis of each of the novels in question. The books in the series all follow the same structure: a biography of the novelist, including other works, influences, and, in some cases, an interview; a full-length study of the novel, drawing out the most important themes and ideas; a summary of how the novel was received upon publication; a summary of how the novel has performed since publication, including film or television adaptations, literary prizes, and so forth; a wide range of suggestions for further reading, including web sites and discussion forums; and a list of questions for reading groups to discuss.

Salman Rushdie's "Midnight's Children" Reviews

'With the first volume I was relieved. After two or three I was hooked...Highly finished and pleasantly handleable as books in their own right, they gesture accommodatingly to both worlds and words beyond.' Times Higher Educational Supplement. 'A brilliant idea - short, perceptive books which tell you what you need to know about some of the most vibrant and challenging writing around today--a bit like having a reading group in your pocket.' Ian Rankin
