Faith is a key component of living. Without it in some form or the other, I daresay, there is no existence.

Faith in love. Faith in military institutions. Faith in religion. Faith in neighborliness. Faith in the old ways that define us. Faith in the arts. Faith in the love and self-sacrifice of family. Faith in marriage and a spirit of unbroken togetherness. Faith in the hope for a better future.

Faith hurts when it is broken or misused.

Shalimar the Clown is a novel of Faith and the hurt caused by breaking the spirit of faith. A must-read novel. ( )

Wonderful. Takes you from Kashmir to Los Angeles, from an indian fable to an intriguing resistance story during World War II in France. Terrorism, love, revenge, religion, it's all here. Rushdie is a master storyteller and even though I liked the Satanic Verses (the first thing I read by Rushdie), I think I might like this one better and I sure as hell finished it faster. It's still not a fast read though, but I feel as if everything comes together much more smoothly here. Highly Recommended. ( )

The depiction of Kashmir in the book is so gripping! There are parts which will stay with me for a long time. ( )

Not my cup of tea. Part way through I said, "Do I care? No." and tossed it. ( )

Excerpts from my original GR review (Mar 18 2013):
- Rushdie's novel is a multilayered, rather dense saga of an ill-fated young love, and the larger, tortured history of mid-century Kashmir.
- It begins in L.A., where debonair, but aged, Max Ophuls, ex-American diplomat, lives easily with stepdaughter India. From chapter two onward, we are taken back in time, first to 1960s Kashmir, where the relatively peaceful coexistence of Hindus and Muslims is coming under stress. Traditional festivals and colorful villagers..form a background for the illicit 14-year old attractions of a Muslim boy and Hindu girl. Acceptance of their coupling is hard won in the community, but Kashmir itself is a hotbed of "iron mullahs" on one extreme and the resolute Indian Army on the other.
- Midway the novel flashes back to Max Ophul's survival in..his beloved Strasbourg, in Alsace, unable to coerce his strident Jewish parents away from their home, and away from the blackness awaiting them when the Nazis come.
- We learn of the evolution of Shalimar, from innocent young tightrope performer in simpler days, to anguished and angry and gullible recruit into some very dishonorable circles.
- Rushdie's writing is..intellectually challenging.. At times I felt immersed, at other times disconnected, and unable to grasp the cultural digressions. In the end, the story didn't resonate with me in it's entirety, yet there were episodes and descriptions that glimmered.. ( )

' "Shalimar the Clown" is hobbled by Mr. Rushdie's determination to graft huge political and cultural issues onto a flimsy soap opera plot.... What is most engaging about this novel - and represents a return to form, after two particularly weak and poorly observed novels - is Mr. Rushdie's creation of several compelling characters....'

"I am being rowed through Paradise on a river of Hell:
Exquisite ghost, it is night.
The paddle is a heart; it breaks the porcelain waves...

I'm everything you lost. You won't forgive me.
My memory keeps getting in the way of your history.
There is nothing to forgive. You won't forgive me.
I hi my pain even from myself; I revealed my pain only to myself.
There is everything to forgive. You can't forgive me.
If only somehow you could have been mine, what would not have been possible in the world."
— Agha Shahid Ali, The Country Without a Post Office
"A plague on both your houses."
— Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Everybody was sensitive nowadays. Everybody had a vocabulary to peddle. Words had become as painful as sticks and stones, or maybe skins had become thinner. India blamed the ozone layer, apologized and changed the subject.
