In diesem Roman, der voller Anspielungen auf Literatur, Musik und Philosophie und wilden, unendlich traurigen und aberwitzigen Geschichten ist, erzählt uns Salman Rushdie die Geschichte einer großen Liebe zwischen einem Komponisten und der Sängerin seiner Lieder. Gleichzeitig erfahren wir die Geschichte der Popmusik, und erhalten ein scharfsinniges Portät unserer modernen Gesellschaft und ihres Alltags.
'The first great rock 'n' roll novel in the English language' The Times

On Valentine's Day, 1989, Vina Apsara, a famous and much-loved singer, disappears in a devastating earthquake.

Her lover, the singer Ormus Cama, cannot accept that he has lost her, and so begins his eternal quest to find her and bring her back. His journey takes him across the globe and through cities pulsating with the power of rock 'n' roll, to Bombay, London and New York.

But around the star-crossed lover and his quest, the uncertain world itself is beginning to tremble and break. Cracks and tears are appearing in the very fabric of reality, and exposing the abyss beyond. And Ormus has to confront just how far he is willing to go for love.
