An epic of India from independence to the emergency state years, told through the words of Saleem Sinai, who happened to be born around Independence Day. He writes the story of his life, which is the story of India.
Somewhat sprawling, sometimes deliberately clumsy, always lively. As he grows up, things turn from the picaresque/fun to more and more dramatic/mystical. I enjoyed it, but sometimes it felt a bit too much of a moralizing history book.
