The Golden House

Indwe - - Books - By Sal­man Rushdie

When pow­er­ful real-es­tate ty­coon Nero Golden im­mi­grates to the States un­der mys­te­ri­ous cir­cum­stances, he and his three adult chil­dren as­sume new iden­ti­ties, tak­ing “Ro­man” names and mov­ing into a grand man­sion in down­town Man­hat­tan. Ar­riv­ing shortly af­ter the in­au­gu­ra­tion of Barack Obama, Nero and his sons, each ex­tra­or­di­nary in his own right, quickly es­tab­lish them­selves at the apex of New York so­ci­ety. In a new world or­der of al­ter­na­tive truths, Sal­man Rushdie has writ­ten the ul­ti­mate novel about iden­tity, truth, ter­ror and lies. A bril­liant, heart-break­ing novel that is not only un­can­nily pre­scient, but shows one of the world’s great­est sto­ry­tellers work­ing at the height of his pow­ers.
