Luka and the Fire of Life

by Salman Rushdie
£7.99   paperback  Vintage (2011)

Luka and the Fire of Life by Salman Rushdie On a beautiful starry night in the city of Kahani in the land of Alifbay a terrible thing happened: twelve-year-old Lukaís storyteller father, Rashid, fell suddenly and inexplicably into a sleep so deep that nothing and no one could rouse him. To save him from slipping away entirely, Luka must embark on a journey through the Magic World, encountering a slew of phantasmagorical obstacles along the way, to steal the Fire of Life, a seemingly impossible and exceedingly dangerous task.

With Haroun and the Sea of Stories Salman Rushdie proved that he is one of the best contemporary writers of fables, and it proved to be one of his most popular books with readers of all ages.

While Haroun was written as a gift for his first son, Luka and the Fire of Life, the story of Harounís younger brother, is a gift for his second son on his twelfth birthday. Lyrical, rich with word-play, and with the narrative tension of the classic quest stories, this is Salman Rushdie at his very best.
