Diga-se que sou admirador de Rushdie e recomendo a leitura do livro. Dele li também Midnight's Children, Haroun and The Sea of Stories, Shalimar The Clown e o pomo da discórdia, The Satanic Verses.
Duas citações portuguesas:
José Saramago had written, 'there is something that has no name. That something is what we are.' The something that had no name within him always came to his rescue in the end. He clenched his teeth, shook his head to clear his thoughts and ordered himself to get on with it.
[E a propósito do livro The Ground Beneath Her Feet] The film rights to the novel had recently been acquired by the piratically dashing Portuguese producer Paulo Branco and the film was to be directed by Raúl Ruiz. He met Branco and proposed Padma for the female lead. 'Of course,' said Branco. 'That will be perfect.' In those days he had not learned how to translate producer-speak into English. He did not realise that Branco was really saying, 'Of course not.'
