Best-selling author Salman Rushdie returns with "a modern American epic set against the panorama of contemporary politics and culture." The Golden House is a spectacular page-turner that pulses with the influence of current American politics and fantastical, flamboyant characters whose lives intertwine to spin a thrilling mystery.
The novel follows young filmmaker René, who's captivated by the eccentric Golden family--patriarch Nero and his three sons, all with idiosyncrasies and secrets to spare. When the Goldens move into the neighborhood, the effects of their arrival ripple outward into New York society and beyond. Then, disarmingly, a lurid society figure begins a presidential campaign that shakes the city in ways that will be unsettlingly familiar to today's reader. Rushdie's "return to realism" is a gilded feat of storytelling that draws from contemporary political narratives and the kaleidoscopic workings of his own imagination.
