“A romance of beauty and power from Italy to India. . . so delightful an homage to Renaissance magic and wonder.” Washington Post

“[A] prodigious fever dream of a book. . . A beguiling, incandescent tale of travel, treachery, and transformation set in the Renaissance Florence of Machiavelli and the Medicis and in India ’s Mughal Empire . Elle          

“A baroque whirlwind of a narrative . . . [Rushdie helps] us escape from the present into a dreamlike past that ultimately makes us more aware of the dangers and illusions of our everyday lives.” Chicago Tribune

“As ever, Rushdie’s verbal profusions war with his love of straight-up storytelling. The reader wins.” —Time

“Salman Rushdie’s ebullient historical novel manifests both his dexterous erudition and his bawdy wit.”
The Atlantic
