Abstract:

The author of The Satanic Verses returns with his most humorous and accessible novel yet. This is the story of Haroun, a 12-year-old boy whose father Rashid is the greatest storyteller in a city so sad that it has forgotten its name. When the gift of gab suddenly deserts Rashid, Haroun sets out on an adventure to rescue his print.

"Let in an exotic Eastern landscape people by magicians and talkning animals, Haroun and the Sea of Stories is the tale of a twelve-year-old boy and his adventure to restore his father's gift of storytelling by reviving the poisoned Sea of Stories. In this wondrous delight for readers of all ages, Salman Rushdie gives us an imaginative work of extraordinary power and endearing humor that is, at its heart, an illumination of the necessity of storytelling in our lives." -- Publisher's description
