In Salman Rushdie: A Deleuzian Reading Søren Frank analyses five of Rushdie?s novels, Grimus, Midnight?s Children, Shame, The Satanic Verses and The Ground Beneath Her Feet. Claiming an intellectual kinship between Rushdie and the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze in regard to worldview, aesthetics and human identity, the author?s analytical starting point is Deleuze?s concepts of rhizome, simulacrum and lines of flight which are used as guiding principles in his comprehensive examination of Rushdie?s compositional and enunciatory strategies and his portrayals of a variety of memorable migrant characters. The volume is an original contribution to the study of Salman Rushdie.
Søren Frank is assistant professor at the Institute of Literature, Media and Cultural Studies at the University of Southern Denmark.
