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?

(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.
