Review: Luka and the Fire of Life

51X+98yyn+LLuka and the Fire of Life: a Novel
by Salman Rushdie (Random House, 2010)

Remember what happened when David Lynch and William Blake went out for tea?

Well, now imagine that Salman Rushdie emceed a brunch-time conversation between Neil Gaiman, Norton Juster, Lewis Carroll, and Paulo Coelho.

The result would be Rushdie’s Luka and the Fire of Life: delight-filled and whimsical, linguistically playful and philosophically inquisitive.

This books brings the Magic into Being.

The author of Snark on the Side is not your average run-of-the-millennial generation. Jen is a contradiction in terms: a graceful klutz, a smart blond, a math-savvy English degree-holder, a southern liberal, and an adult amateur equestrian who doesn’t match her saddle pads. Snark on the Side is a work in progress, born out of years of rambling email newsletters and anthropomorphized Christmas letters, small town observations, and the ever-present irony of pursuing a career with a degree in English literature. Thanks for visiting!
