Luka and The Fire Of Life

By Rushdie, Salman




Knighted by Queen Elizabeth, named to the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France and elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Sir Salman Rushdie is one of the foremost novelists of our time. Winner of the Booker Prize, the Best of the Bookers, and the Booker of Bookers, Rushdie ranks with the best writers of a generation.
 
The author of sixteen previous books, Rushdie is best known for his second novel, Midnight’s Children, which launched him into fame, and The Satanic Verses, which touched off a storm of protest across the Muslim world and resulted in a fatwa issued by the Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran. These two novels together helped shape two themes that have come together to give form to his career. On one hand, he nearly single-handedly defined the shape that Indian novels written in English would take for decades. And on the other he became a symbol of enlightenment and free speech, defiant against the forces of intolerance and fundamentalist religion.
 
His books often tread a path that navigates these directions in his career. Fascinated both by the form of magic realism and the subject matter of post-colonialism, and by the experiences of various diasporas, Rushdie’s works have an uncanny ability to tease the story out of people’s sacred truths.
 
An international celebrity, Rushdie is often in the public eye, whether the focus is on his personal life or his political views. He is also Distinguished Writer-in-Residence at Emory University, and Midnight’s Children has been adapted for a film version, to be shot by Canadian director Deepa Mehta.

LUKA AND THE FIRE OF LIFE: A NOVEL

Rushdie, Salman

New York City, NY: Random House, 2010. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Random House, 2010. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 218 pages. The author's eleventh novel. The companion volume to "Haroun and The Sea of Stories", the very first book the author published when he was still in deep hiding as a result of the fatwa issued against him by the late, unlamented Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Salman Rushdie's "Luka And The Fire of Life". His dazzling companion-novel to "Haroun and The Sea of Stories". The latter was "born at a time of crisis in its author's life, and the fictional Haroun's quest to rescue his father's lost storytelling skills in a world in which stories themselves are being poisoned was a fable that responded to that crisis. 'Luka and The Fire of Life' is a response to a different, but equally great, danger: That an older father may not live to see his son grow up. In the earlier book, it was storytelling that was being threatened; in the new one, it is the storyteller who is at risk. The book grows out of the reality of my own life and my relationship with a very particular child. Luka is my son Milan's middle name just as Haroun is Zafar's. As well as the central theme of life and death, Luka explores things I have thought about all my life: The relationships between the world of imagination and the real world, between authoritarianism and liberty, between what is true and what is phony, and between ourselves and the gods that we create. It has been my aim to write a story that demolishes the boundary between 'adult' and 'children's' literature" (Salman Rushdie). An absolute "must-have" title for Salman Rushdie collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Salman Rushdie. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Booker Prize in 1981 for "Midnight's Children", which was also selected as "The Booker of Bookers" in 1993, the best of all previous winners. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SALMAN RUSHDIE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0679463364.

LUKA AND THE FIRE OF LIFE: A Novel

Rushdie, Salman

New York, New York, U.S.A. : Random House, 2010. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Signed by author on title page in black fountain ink.A dazzling story told for the love of story gives us a novel of wisdom and pleasure for all ages, in which a young boy must battle his way through a dangerous world in order to save his father. On a beautiful starry night in the city of Kahani in the land of Alifbay, a terrible thing happened: twelve-year-old Luka's storyteller father, Rashid, fell suddenly and inexplicably into a sleep so deep that nothing and no one could rouse him. To save him from slipping away entirely, Luka must embark on a journey through The Magic World, encountering a slew of phantasmagorical obstacles along the way, to steal the Fire of Life, a seemingly impossible and exceedingly dangerous task.Rushdie proved that he is one of the best contemporary writers with HAROUND AND THE SEA OF STORIES(1990). While Haroun was written as a gift for his first son, LUKA AND THE FIRE OF LIFE, the story of Haroun's younger brother, is a gift for Salman's second son on the occasion of his twelfth birthday. Lyrically crafted and filled with frolicking wordplay, this is Salman Rushdie at his best. Fine, unread, first edition, first printing, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. {Mot remainder0marked or price-clipped} L130
