Literary Tour de Force
Rushdie's first novel Grimus was met with critical acclaim, but did not fair well commercially. Rushdie's second novel, Midnight's Children, a novel about a child who was born on the midnight that India gained independance from Britain, won him the Booker Prizer and propelled him to literary stardom.
