by Salman Rushdie
Although author Salman Rushdie is most famous for The Satanic Verses, the book that brought him repeated death threats, his most significant work concern his native India and its transition from a British colony to an independent nation. The book is one of many “postcolonial” works that were considered for the reading project.
Midnight’s Children came out in 1981, and fortunately for readers like me, it was published in English. I downloaded an electronic copy of the book. At my standard font size, the book is 530 pages in length.
