  • Information


'Salman Rushdie's greatest novel' Sunday Times Moraes 'Moor' Zogoiby is the last in line of a crooked and fantastical dynasty of spice merchants and crime lords from Cochin.

He is also a compulsive storyteller and an exile. As we travel with him on a route that takes him from India to Spain, he spins his labyrinthine family tale of mad passions and volcanic family hatreds. But does the India of his parents - populated by extravagant artists, piratical gatekeepers and mysterious lost paintings - still exist? And will he ever discover what became of his fiery and tempestuous mother?

Moraes' epic quest to uncover the truth of the past is a love story to a vanishing world, and also its last hurrah. **One of the BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**
