Like Moor, Rushdie knowsMoreIn The Moors Last Sigh Salman Rushdie revisits some of the same ground he covered in his greatest novel, Midnights Children. This book is narrated by Moraes Zogoiby, aka Moor, who speaks to us from a gravestone in Spain. Like Moor, Rushdie knows about a life spent in banishment from normal society--Rushdie because of the death sentence that followed The Satanic Verses, Moor because he ages at twice the rate of normal humans. Yet Moors story of travail is bigger than Rushdies- it encompasses a grand struggle between good and evil while Moor himself stands as allegory for Rushdies home country of India. Filled with wordplay and ripe with humor, it is an epic work, and Rushdie has the tools to pull it off. He earned a 1995 Whitbread Prize for his efforts.
