<i>Offspring Fictions: Salman Rushdie's Family Novels</i> is the first book-length study that examines families and especially the parent-child relationship in Rushdie's core works. It argues that Sigmund Freud's concept of the family and the author's variations thereon are central to a full understanding of the four novels <i>Midnight's</i> <i>Children</i>, <i>Shame</i>, the controversial <i>The Satanic Verses</i> and <i>The Moor's Last Sigh</i>, a quasi-sequel to Rushdie's first success. Through close readings that make use of a variety of critical approaches, <i>Offspring Fictions</i> provides a sustained examination of how the parents and children that people Rushdie's fictions reflect the larger issues his work is concerned with: nationalism, religion, history and authorship. Aimed primarily at academics and students, but also of interest to the general reader, <i>Offspring Fictions</i> provides a clear and insightful analysis of Rushdie's family tetralogy.
