I'm brand new to this community, and I'm so glad to find people who are interested in this writer.
Recently I've started to work on a new project that describes a Rushdie-pattern discourse in postcolonial literature. I wonder if anyone has come across some Rushdie-like "mainstream" books lately? A couple of names or book titles would be of great help
Thanks in advance

I'm looking for an etext of the "Haroun and the Sea of Stories"? The play would be better than the novel. Need it for (possible) work. Did anyone ever run into such digital texts by SR? Thanks in advance to anyone who knows...
I want to read Mr Rushdie, but for some reason I stumble and don't finish. The one exception is Haroun and the Sea of Stories, which was suggested by a friend as an easy Rushdie option. I've tried Midnight's Children and The Ground Beneath Her Feet, and while it's possible I could retry them, could anyone here be so good as to suggest something easier to approach? I don't mind difficult books (I did a degree in literature filled with them) but to be honest I cannot put my finger on why I find it hard to get into or finish his books. It's not boredom, it's not difficulty, it's not for lack of caring about the characters, or perhaps it is all of these and more. And yet I want to read his work, because there is enough in his words to beguile me. Beguile, but not fully engage. Please, I beseech thee, give me Rushdie with teeth and jaws that won't let go, with eyes that will mesmerise me to the spot, until I have been digested by the book, rather than having tried to digest it and been left hungry.
Hi. I'm new here. Have been a big Rushdie fan for some time and am glad to have found a place to discuss the man and his writing.
P.S. If anybody out there has any spare tickets to the Salman Rushdie event at the Edinburgh Book Festival I'd be very interested to know! :)
