Vintage Minis bring you the world’s greatest writers on the experiences that make us human – from birth to death and everything in between

Salman Rushdie, a self-described ‘emigrant from one place and a newcomer in two’, explores the true meaning of home. Writing with insight, passion and humour, he looks at what it means to belong, whether roots are real and homelands imaginary, what it is like to reconfigure your past from fragments of memory and what happens when East meets West.

Selected from the books Shame, Imaginary Homelands and East, West by Salman Rushdie
