Reviews of Shalimar the Clown

1. Rating 4.5/5

begun perusing this book quite a while in the past and just completed it presently, as of late having been helped to remember Kashmir by somebody, I returned to it.
Curiously enough, it’s a story of affection and retribution and the darlings’ wrecked hearts and edgy decisions on the scenery of the deplorable history of Kashmir, which in Rushdie’s once in a while dazzling composition takes steps to tear your heart out particularly the impactful melodious section portraying the obliteration of the Kashmiri town of Pachigam.
This being Rushdie, there are contacts of his trademark enchantment authenticity, yet they appear to fit splendidly in this creepy fantasy.
My mom once enlightened me concerning Kashmir that its magnificence is its approval and its revile – that people take heaven and transform it into a horrendous experience in light of our unpleasantness and brutality.

Inside this book

At twenty-four the ambassador’s daughter slept badly through the warm, unsurprising nights. She woke up frequently and even when sleep did come her body was rarely at rest, thrashing and flailing as if trying to break free of dreadful invisible manacles. At times she cried out in a language she did not speak. Men had told her this, nervously. Not many men had ever been permitted to be present while she slept. The evidence was therefore limited, lacking consensus; however, a pattern emerged.
According to one report, she sounded guttural, glottal-stopped as if she were speaking Arabic. Night-Arabian, she thought, the dream tongue of Scheherazade. Another version described her words as science-fictional, like Klingon, like a throat being cleared in a galaxy far, far away. Like Sigourney Weaver channeling a demon in Ghostbusters. One night in a spirit of research the ambassador’s daughter left a tape recorder running by her bedside but when she heard the voice on the tape its death’s-head ugliness, which was somehow both familiar and alien, scared her badly and she pushed the erase button, which erased nothing important. The truth was still the truth.
