The Moor's Last Sigh
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
InhaltPaperback edition of Rushdie's first novel since "The Satanic Verses", and one of the most highly acclaimed novels of the decade so far. The skilfully crafted and many-layered tale of the only son of a wealthy Bombay family - describing his life of scandal and depravity, and his final redemption in a violent climax - it is already a resounding critical and commercial success, and this B-format edition should do very well.
