RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 18558869 LA English T1 The satanic verses A1 Rushdie, Salman., PB Viking Penguin Inc. PP New York, N.Y. YR 1989 SN 0670825379 9780670825370 AB A hijacked jumbo jet blows apart high above the English Channel. Two figures, Gibreel and Saladin, are washed up on an English beach. Soon curious changes occur--Gibreel seems to have acquired a halo, while Saladin grows hooves and bumps at his temples. They are transformed into living symbols of what is angelic and evil. This is the initial act in an odyssey that merges the actual with the imagined.
