Fury Salman Rushdie 259pp, Jonathan Cape, £1. 9. I happened to see Salman Rushdie when he must have been writing this novel. It was at an international conference in LA on "British Fiction 2000". Furor poeticus", literary fury: the gift of the gods. If a man lives by his pen, it's good news. If he's just an ordinary Joe, "fury" is what vengeful women turn on him (Furies, like Harpies, are always female). The organiser had brought along practitioners as well as dry-as-dust critics; Martin and Ian (but not, alas, Julian) were in attendance. And buzzing round these celebrity novelists were the paparazzi.

Fury-sexual, Oedipal, political, magical, brutal- drives us to our finest heights and coarsest depths. In his eighth novel, Salman Rushdie brilliantly entwines moments of anger and frenzy with those of humor, honesty, and intimacy. This is what we are, what we civilize ourselves to disguise-the terrifying human animal in us, the exalted, transcendent, self-destructive, untrammeled lord of creation. Fury is, above all, a masterly chronicle of the human condition. Отзывы - Написать отзыв.

Fury (Hardcover)

Why are people in the prosperous, constantly stimulating, world of material plentitude and endless opportunities that is America in the late 1990's so filled with fury? What happens to artistry in a world of global communications? What happens when a character you've created becomes commodified, commercialized, watered down, and transmogrified into a global icon you hate?
In 259 pages of energetic, sometimes frenetic and breathtaking prose, Rushdie explores these and other questions as he tells us the story of Malik Solanka, an ex-professor turned television scriptwriter who has somewhere along the line turned into a very angry man. He was never a particularly even-tempered fellow--one of his friends reminds him that he once threw someone out of his house for misquoting Philip Larkin--but now his constant, gnawing, soul-sapping fury has driven him to the point where he fears he will become violent. When we first meet Solanka, he has already fled from his family in England to America, fearing for their safety if he stays. America, however, does not prove much of a solution, as he is constantly provoked by the loudness, by American mannerisms, by American culture. Watching TV news coverage of the Elian Gonzalez story is enough to make the red ball of anger in him rise again, as does the American "cultural hypersensitivity, this almost pathological fear of giving offense," as does the cultural inauthenticity of a pseudo-Viennese Kaffeehaus where the counter staff doesn't even recognize the word "Linzertorte."
This novel has passages of linguistic gymnastics and cultural play worthy of the best of Rushdie, and I would certainly recommend reading it. The verbal fun and the acuity of Rushdie's vision of America is dead-on in so many places, and you will find yourself laughing and nodding in recognition as he describes people having loud cell phone discussions about very personal topics in public places, for example, and his riffs on everything from literary academic stars to advertising culture. The doll he created, Little Brain, is also terrific, at least in her original incarnation: Solanka's idea was that she should be sassy time-traveler who would interview the great thinkers of the past. You got to love a woman who gives Galileo flak.
Although there are many reasons to read and love this book, this novel is not quite a first-tier Rushdie. It is surprisingly plot-heavy for such a short book, and some of its sub-plots are a bit hackneyed. Murders of the rich and beautiful, TWO cases of incest, a third-world coup by a megalomaniac leader--while Rushdie gets some good material out of these plot threads, these stories don't have the energy that usually permeates every nook and cranny of a Rushdie novel. I also have some reservations about the conclusion. What exactly has Solanka learned over the course of his adventures, and how is this embodied in his final actions? This ending is far more equivocal and, I think, despairing than those of many of Rushdie's fictions.
While this is not the best novel Rushdie has ever written, it is nonetheless decidedly worth reading. Read it for its (as always) interesting protagonist and its raw, witty insights into life in contemporary America. This is Rushdie's _The Way We Live Now_.
I only just read FURY for the first time, and my tardiness finds Salman Rushdie's book now embedded in a post 9/11 English speaking world that is at "war" against terrorism, with the author being lately knighted, provoking a renewed fatwa on his life. I can't help thinking that reading FURY at this time led me to a different perspective from those reading it upon its publication in 2001.

Many others have pointed out that FURY is not Salman Rushdie's finest work, but it is still a fabulous read. I found it to be intelligent and moving, if at times unnecessarily difficult. This group of Rushdie's characters seems completely modern yet with a timeless feel. Rushdie's plot once again revolves around alter-realities; sometimes cultural, but mostly psychological, and I found the doll trope particularly attractive.

If you've read Rushdie I highly recommend FURY, if not, begin with MIDNIGHT"S CHILDREN or the incomparable SATANIC VERSES.
Something made Salman Rushdie, an author of prodigious talents, have to write this book, but you don't have to read it. Rushdie's "Midnight's Children" and "The Satanic Verses" soar with their larger than life characters, rich depictions of the Indian subcontinent, lyrical prose, and magic realism, and they tell fine stories. "Fury," by contrast, is a ruminating monologue, a screed, which wrestles darkly with American mass culture, the overclass, personas, the political pretensions of the Indian diaspora, intellectual honesty, and the dilemma of love.
There is narrative heat here but precious little light. Rushdie's characters fail to engage. His issues fail to resolve. A tragedy worthy of the Greek Furies, who horribly punish unavenged crimes, utterly fails to develop. Unless you happen to be writing your dissertation on Rushdie, you can safely pass on "Fury."
In brief this book is beautifully written. Just read almost any passage aloud to hear what I mean. Moreover the subject of unconscious fury and how it can affect the conscious life is truly terrifying. However it all kind of gets away from Rushdie in the last quarter. While the climax and resolution works metaphorically it does not work realistically. You will see what Rushdie means but it comes off like the climax of a bad sitcom. It is too bad. I really wanted to see how a modern man can overcome his inner Furies. Rushdies answer will not satisfy. Still is not the question more important. If you think it is you could do much worse than this book by a modern master.
This book should be savored, not for its plot, but for the narrator's delicious critique of all that is foolish. The aging melancholy, dyspeptic professor is both immersed in New York and alienated from it as he analyzes all that is around him during the summer of 2000 when among other things there is national hysteria over the Elian Gonzalez case. For me the treat of this novel is not the story line but Rushdie's diatribes against human idiocy. For example he succinctly derides the sentimental brutishness of the Elian worshippers in a way that made me laugh and say to myself, "Why didn't I write that?" I kept doing this as I read the novel, envying Rushdie for his ability to articulate human foolishness in all its magnitude. This book is a profoundly beautiful satire where Rushdie combines the topical with the mythical and makes it look easy. I've tried to read three Rushdie books before and couldn't finish them. This book is an exception.
