Shalimar the Clown, Rushdie's new offering

Salman Rushdie’s latest novel, Shalimar the Clown, set in the turbulent backdrop of Kashmir is due to be released soon. Satanic verses bypassed me owing to the Indian government which was one of the first to bypass it. Since then I have read and liked most of his books. Here are some links to the new book.
This is the official carefully scripted laudatory one by the publishers.
Here is a more story-line focussed one while this one , to me, is a good example of a review that really gives nothing away but doesn’t much capture the flavor of the writing either!
