The Ground Beneath Her FeetBook - 1999
An epic romance that stretches across whole lives, and even beyond death, Salman Rushdie's most accessible novel and his boldest imaginative act is also a vivid account of the intimate, flawed encounter between East and West, a remaking of the myth of Orpheus, and an exploration of the extremities of comedy, culture and desire. The Ground Beneath Her Feet is a gripping story that encapsulates the history, dreams and passions of the last half century as no other novel has done.
