A Vintage Shorts ';Short Story Month' Selection Secular moneylender and manic collector of treasures, Hashim lives a life of gentle honor until he discovers, washed up to his private quay, a great relic: a silver pendant bearing a strand of the Prophet's hair. From one of the most controversial novelists of the last century, world-renowned master of invention and allusion Salman Rushdie, ';The Prophet's Hair' vibrates with fantastical promise, smashing together cultures and worlds, fantasy with reality, into breathless and lush allegorical fable. Selected from Rushdie's collection of nine enchanting short stories, East West. An ebook short.
