Although this short novel is far from his best work, it's a nice showcase for everything that Rushdie does best. Densely layered with cultural, political and literary references and double entendres, Fury is a hilarious, farcical, intellectual romp. On the skewer this time are American society in the first years of the 21st century, academe, the Internet generation and gender politics to name just a few.
