Description - Fury by Salman Rushdie
Malik Solanka, historian of ideas and dollmaker extraordinary, abandons his family one day and flees to New York. There's a fury within him, and he fears he has become dangerous to those he loves. He arrives in New York in the highest hour of America's wealth and power, seeking to 'erase' himself. But fury is all around him. The petty spats and bone-deep resentments of the metropolis engulf him. His own thoughts and desires, meanwhile, are also running wild. A woman, with whom he will fall in love and be drawn towards a different fury - her roots lie on the far side of the world.
