Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie

The plot of Midnight’s Children centres on the swapping of two babies at birth. An allegory for India’s recent history, the novel leaves the reader with a great love for its Indian world whilst the fantastical plot and flamboyant narrative give new excitement to the most traditional of British comic literary fancies. Rushdie is a born storyteller.
Salman Rushdie was born in Bombay. Midnight’s Children was adjudged the ‘Booker of Bookers’ in 1993, the best novel to have won the Booker Prize in its first 25 years.
