Midnight's Children

Out of stock - dispatches within 5-7 business days


A beautiful hardback edition of a modern classic and winner of 'The Best of the Booker' - the best novel from Booker Prize history.

Born at the stroke of midnight at the exact moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is a special child. However, this coincidence of birth has consequences he is not prepared for: telepathic powers connect him with 1,000 other 'midnight's children' all of whom are endowed with unusual gifts. Inextricably linked to his nation, Saleem's story is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirrors the course of modern India at its most impossible and glorious.

'A wonderful, rich and humane novel that is safe to call a classic' Guardian
