Reprint. Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 1994.
A brilliant collection of short stories from the Booker prize winning author

In these nine stories, Salman Rushdie looks at what happens when East meets West, at the forces that pull his characters first in one direction, then the other.

Fantasy and realism collide as a rickshaw driver writes letters describing his film star career in Bombay; a mispronunciation leads to romance and an unusual courtship in sixties London; two childhood friends turned diplomats live out in a violent world fantasies hatched by "Star Trek"; and Christopher Columbus dreams of consummating his relationship with Queen Isabella.

The stories in "East, West" show the extraordinary range and power of Salman Rushdie's writing.
