The Golden House
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.
