My first brush with Salman Rushdie proved to be frankly uneventful perhaps like my experience with Coetzee’s “Disgrace” sorta kinda He writes of this “fury born of long injustice beside which his own unpredictable temper was a thing of pathetic insignificance the indulgence perhaps of a privileged individual with too much self interest” This is what happens when a man accumulates too much wealth having ideas which blow up to become global phenomenons—hopefully not an autobiographical theme for Rushdie Why are writers with so much fame becoming so self aware of it exploit this to the fullest in their works Guess I'm still enchanted with that now mythical figure of the penniless artist Coetzee Rushdie McEwan Cunningham they all write about the rich folk having feelings too Another thing if you have not familiarized yourself with mythology well enough this novel may become murky blurry Why are narrators so cranial nowadays Not everything goes back to ancient Greece that story of a lucky individual can never become globalized that is too fake an anecdote almost elitist; too unfortunate a plot to undertake with brilliant neat prose Plus hearing about the Zeitgeist from an older British gent his take on post millennium Americana is not as riveting as say ANY GIVENTOKEN US TEEN’s daily diary confessions

I’d known before I picked this up that ‘Fury’ was one of his critically most damned works – despite that warning I gaily went ahead Because I’m simply in love with the genius of that man Of the 4 works I’ve read of his my reactions have ranged from ever growing adoration The Moor’s Last Sigh which I’ve read 9 times in 4 years and will read yet again to reluctant reading The Satanic Verses which has some nuggets of pure brilliance and heady defiance in an otherwise dump of garbage But never have I encountered such a disastrous piece of fiction especially by him Why do I read Rushdie Because I love his verbal density that draws blood under the garb of comic relief and unapologetic Bambaiya forbidden language of lavish absuses Because he deftly weaves complex layers of satire story telling and colonial history into a multi hued carpet full of motif signifiers and signs some of them obscure and some right in your face Because he is irreverent Because nothing is sacred to him Because he boldly says what needs to be said without mincing his words Because he insults where insults need to be thrown Because he is rude crude bitter sharp cynical unbowed unfettered – you cannot control him You cannot deny the truth in his fiction He breathes fire Because he cruelly lifts masks off the Grand Narratives about whoever he picks to star in his works Much of the really beautiful aspects of his works are esoteric – they are references that only people really deeply aware about India can understand so I’m not surprised at non Indians not falling so deeply in love with himI love people like that – who break taboos who make me swallow the bitter tinged filth of my identity when I open my mouth to laugh hard at his explicit expletive laden language Because his language is not just a gimmick to shock and scandalize – read between the lines and there is bitter biting sarcasm political satire loads of historicalcultural references psychological insights into the era of the setting the numerous popular culture references crucial to the shaping of that time It is a rich rich tapestry that is clever deep and entertaining And to many conservatives shamelessly offensive And I love thatBut none of it this time This is not the Rushdie I know and adore It’s almost like a ghost writer penning a Rushdie lookalike a dummy writer forging a pseudo Rushdie and failing miserably This book has no charm no intriguing layers of history culture political commentary vivid picturing of people places and their fetishes Where every single line had a meaning a reference a significance in his other works entire paragraphs here serve to do nothing but fill empty pages It is like someone ate away all the luscious cream from my chocolate truffle gateau leaving only the plain sponge behind mocking me with the erasureIn a word it is bland tasteless almost unmemorable The only time I caught a faint flicker of Rushdie was at the end of Chapter 9 where he attacked an extremely unpleasant aspect of Gandhi every Indian has either chosen to overlook or furiously deny and forget ”Like Gandhi performing his brahmacharya celibacy ‘experiments of truth’ when the wives of his friends lay with him at night to enable him to test the mastery of mind over limb he Solanka preserved the outward form of high propriety; and so did she so did she”The narrative is extremely disinterested even if the change in “trademark” Rushdie style is admitted – it just doesn’t connect with the reader Unlike some of his other works this has neither content nor style Solanka’s motivations even towards the end seem plain unbelievable Eleanor’s sudden appearance Neela’s sacrifice everything in fact seem too dry and contrived The only reason I did not lem this book was that I wanted to know if this ceaseless criticism on the book was justified or if it was plain unacceptance of any methodological deviance from the signature Rushdie styleAll I can say is that it was well deserved and I’m not going to waste my time dwelling on what already other reviewers have pointed out Off to something better
