Golden House (Rushdie) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
(Starred review.) Ambitious and rewarding.… [A] distinctively rich epic of the immigrant experience in modern America, where no amount of money or self-abnegation can truly free a family from the sins of the past.
Publishers Weekly


This latest from "Booker of Bookers" prize winner Rushdie chronicles a young American filmmaker's involvement with a real estate tycoon while plumbing American culture and politics since the inauguration of Barack Obama.… One can almost hear Rushdie sharpening his knives.
Library Journal


(Starred review.) A ravishingly well-told, deeply knowledgeable, magnificently insightful, and righteously outraged epic which pos­es timeless questions about the human condition. Can a person be both good and evil? Is family destiny? Does the past always catch up to us?
Booklist


(Starred review.) Where Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities sent up the go-go, me-me Reagan/Bush era, Rushdie’s latest novel captures the existential uncertainties of the anxious Obama years.… A sort of Great Gatsby for our time: everyone is implicated, no one is innocent, and no one comes out unscathed.
