The novel that set the stage for his modern classic, "The Satanic Verses," "Shame" is Salman Rushdie s phantasmagoric epic of an unnamed country that is not quite Pakistan. In this dazzling tale of an ongoing duel between the families of two men one a celebrated wager of war, the other a debauched lover of pleasure Rushdie brilliantly portrays a world caught between honor and humiliation shamelessness, shame: the roots of violence. "Shame" is an astonishing story that grows more timely by the day."
