This Review Copy of "The Satanic Verses" has been SIGNED by Salman Rushdie on the title page! Includes the Review Slip, the Publisher's Sheet, Author Photo, small pamphlet regarding the Fatwah calling for Rushdie's death, and a three page summary about the Controversy surrounding "The Satanic Verses" -- all laid-in! In this great wheel of a book, where the past and the future chase each other furiously, Salman Rushdie takes us on an epic journey of tears and laughter, of bewitching stories and astounding flights of imagination, a journey toward the evil and good that lie entwined within the hearts of women and men. One of the most controversial and acclaimed novels ever written, "The Satanic Verses" is Salman Rushdie's best-known and most galvanizing book. Set in a modern world filled with both mayhem and miracles, the story begins with a bang: the terrorist bombing of a London-bound jet in midflight. Two Indian actors of opposing sensibilities fall to earth, transformed into living symbols of what is angelic and evil. This is just the initial act in a magnificent odyssey that seamlessly merges the actual with the imagined. A book whose importance is eclipsed only by its quality, "The Satanic Verses" is a key work of our times. This copy signed by Sir Rushdie from his appearance at the Free Library of Philadelphia on December 10, 2019.
