Biographical contexts
in Salman Rushdie
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

If the reservoir of Rushdie's imaginative resources is substantially fed by stories drawn from the complex intertextual sea of world narrative, it is also generously topped up by events taken from his own biography and family history. This chapter discusses how Rushdie freely adapts autobiographical elements to suit the demands of a fiction that is more concerned to use elements of fantasy to dramatise the experience of pre- and post-colonial India than it is to offer a veracious account of his childhood.
