Reprint. Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 1983.
A masterful combination of history, myth, art, language, politics and religion from this legendary writer

Omar Khayyam Shakil had three mothers who shared the symptoms of pregnancy, as they did everything else, inseparably.

At their six breasts, Omar was warned against all feelings and nuances of shame.

It was training which would prove useful when he left his mothers' fortress (via the dumb-waiter) to face his shameless future...As captivating fairy-tale, devastating political satire and exquisite, uproarious entertainment, "Shame" is a novel without rival.
