Description

‘A wonderful, rich and humane novel… a classic’ Guardian

Born at the stroke of midnight at the exact moment of India’s independence, Saleem Sinai is a special child.

However, this coincidence of birth has consequences he is not prepared for: telepathic powers connect him with 1,000 other ‘midnight’s children’ all of whom are endowed with unusual gifts. Inextricably linked to his nation, Saleem’s story is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirrors the course of modern India at its most impossible and glorious.
