Behind the Mic: The Golden House

Words as spices in Salman Rushdie’s magical realism

Vikas Adam takes AudioFile listeners Behind the Mic to talk about the pleasure of narrating Salman Rushdie’s THE GOLDEN HOUSE, which is honored on our 2017 Best of the Year Fiction list.

“Salman Rushdie is a master of words. He uses words as if they are spices.”—Narrator Vikas Adam

Rushdie presents a sophisticated, edgy depiction of modern American culture and politics through the lives of wealthy immigrants, and Vikas delivers all of the rich narrative. A listening pleasure. Listen to a sound clip and read AudioFile’s full review here.

Check out Vikas’s profile page. We love several of the two-part harmony narrations Vikas has done for children — SAVE ME SEAT and  SAME, SAME BUT DIFFERENT — and his performance of LION, the memoir that inspired the film of the same name. Explore Vikas’s full audiography here.
