The Golden House is a 2017 novel by Salman Rushdie. The novel, his thirteenth, is set in Mumbai and New York.


Writing for The Guardian, Aminatta Forna said: "Rushdie puts his finger on the nationwide identity crisis in this novel of race, reinvention and the different bubbles of US life."[1] Reviewer Dwight Garner of The New York Times opined: "The Golden House is a big novel, wide but shallow, so wide it has its own meteorology. The forecast: heavy wind"[2]; while New Statesman reviewer Leo Robson dismissed it as "little more than an exercise in googling, an attempt to sell the listicle as literature."[3]
