Luka and the fire of life…

Salman Rushdie’s new book, is a treat for many of us who entered Haroun’s magical yet realistic world.

If the question at the center of Haroun and the Sea of Stories is, “What’s the use of stories that aren’t even true?” then the central question in Luka and the Fire of Life could well be, “What is the use of stories that no longer matter?” Salman Rushdie creates a powerful and provocative fable for our times. He sets his story in a culture that once shared a common foundation of Greek, Roman and Egyptian mythology, Alice in Wonderland and Sherlock Holmes, but its citizens now seek a collective amnesia. They have begun to forget their history and turn their backs on the past.

Here are some of the other new arrivals, which you should consider picking up.
