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.

Fourthy years since its first publication, Midnight’s Children endures as a modern classic, a landmark of contemporary literature – and the winner of the “Booker of Bookers”.
