Offspring Fictions: Salman Rushdies Family Novels.
Offspring Fictions: Salman Rushdies Family Novels is the first book-length study that examines families and especially the parent-child relationship in Rushdies core works. It argues that Sigmund Freuds concept of the family and the authors variations thereon are central to a full understanding of the four novels Midnights Children, Shame, the controversial The Satanic Verses and The Moors Last Sigh, a quasi-sequel to Rushdies first success. Through close readings that make use of a variety of critical approaches, Offspring Fictions provides a sustained examination of how the parents and children that people Rushdies fictions reflect the larger issues his work is concerned with: nationalism, religion, history and authorship. Aimed primarily at academics and students, but also of interest to the general reader, Offspring Fictions provides a clear and insightful analysis of Rushdies family tetralogy.
