Midnight's Children

Updated: 7 Sep 2020
Born at the stroke of midnight at the exact moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is a special child. However, this coincidence of birth has consequences he is not prepared for: telepathic powers connect him with 1,000 other 'midnight's children' all of whom are endowed with unusual gifts. Inextricably linked to his nation, Saleem's story is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirrors the course of modern India at its most impossible and glorious.

“It is the most enchanting book. And it’s such a brilliant idea: Children born at the same hour who metaphorically encompass all the good and evil attributes of a new society. Rushdie writes with a true patriotism — a love for his country that’s not blind.”
