really liked it

Rushdie's writing contains the joyous confusions of being claimed by two cultures. I love when Rushdie digresses and lets loose a curious flood of details, such as when describing a case of noxious bad breath or delivering a feast of images as he does in "At The Auction of the Ruby Slippers." These stories are short--you can enjoy an 11-minute vacation and come back with something to think about.
