Description
The only winner of the Booker of Bookers, for Midnight's Children, as well as the author of such novels as The Satanic Verses and The Enchantress of Florence, Salman Rushdie returns to the world he created in Haroun and the Sea of Stories to tell another enchanted tale for young adults. Rashid Khalifa, the legendary storyteller and the father of Haroun, has fallen into a deep sleep from which no one can wake him. To keep his father from slipping away entirely, Haourn's kid brother Luka must embark on a quest—replete with unlikely creatures, strange alliances, and seemingly insurmountable challenges—through the land of the Badly Behaved Gods to steal the ever-burning Fire of Life.

"A book that can reach out to meet and move and touch a reader at any time of the reader's life, from childhood to middle age and beyond, is a rare and magical book, and Salman Rushdie is a rare and magical writer."—Michael Chabon

"Luka and the Fire of Life is a beautiful book. Well-written (obviously), imaginative (astonishingly so) and wonderful in the way it builds heartfelt magical fiction for kids who love video games: It's like a bridge, built between generations, fabulous and strange and from the heart."—Neil Gaiman
