The Mature Artist

So far I have read two chapters in Salman Rushdie’s Luka and the Fire of Life, and I already know the book is going to be brilliant. Like nature, his writing is recursive. However, repetition is never boring or facile; each detail, each turn of phrase advances the story and reveals consistently the form of the whole. This kind of mastery is inspiring.
