Description:
London: Viking,, 1988. A canonical title of magical realism, signed First edition, first impression, signed by the author on the title page. The furious international controversy this novel sparked has been described as "one of the most significant events in postwar literary history" (Kureishi). Rushdie, who had long been under police protection since its publication, suffered an attack over the novel in 2022. He reflects on this in Knife: Meditations After an Attempted Murder (2024). The New York Times spoke highly of its literary merit soon after publication: "In its entirety, it resembles only itself, but there are, in its parts, strands and shades of resemblance: to Sterne, for one, in the joys of digression; to Swift in scathingness of political satire; to the fairy and folktales of the Brothers Grimm, to Ovid's Metamorphoses, The Arabian Nights, Thomas Mann's Transposed Heads, [and more]". Octavo. Original blue boards, spine lettered in gilt. With supplied dust jacket. Tiny puncture to front… Read More

Description:
Viking. First edition published by Viking in 1988. This is a very near fine copy. The jacket is completely unfaded, a very rare attribute with most copies having some sunning at the spine. This copy is the same deep blue tone across all of the jacket. There is tiny amounts of wear to the corner tips. The book is in excellent condition with only a very small handful of tiny flecks to the text block. The copyright page shows a full number line down to 1 as called for, for a first edition. The author Salman Rushdie has signed his name without dedication to the title page. Signed copies have become uncommon in recent times and are scarce in this very near fine condition.  Rushdie's award winning book that has been perceived as blasphemous by some. It has caused controversy and censorship in a handful of countries. Rushdie has been the target of attacks and attempted assassination over it. It was his fourth book where he continued to write within the realms of magic realism. A scarce book… Read More

Description:
Uncorrected Advance Proof Copy; Near Fine in wraps. SIGNED by the author on the half title page (the book has no title page as issued). A unique collectible for the Rushdie fan; the uncorrected proof is scarce in the marketplace, particularly signed. Near Fine with some mild rubbing and creasing to the edges and light soiling to the exterior text block. Not remaindered, not ex-library; in an archival bag and will ship in a sturdy box."One of the most controversial and acclaimed novels ever written, The Satanic Verses is Salman Rushdie's best-known and most galvanizing book. Set in a modern world filled with both mayhem and miracles, the story begins with a bang: the terrorist bombing of a London-bound jet in midflight. Two Indian actors of opposing sensibilities fall to earth, transformed into living symbols of what is angelic and evil. This is just the initial act in a magnificent odyssey that seamlessly merges the actual with the imagined. A book whose importance is eclipsed only by its quality, The… Read More
