Haroun and the Sea of Stories is a children's fantasy novel, written by Salman Rushdie, and first published in 1990. The book is set in a city so old that it has forgotten its name, and is an allegory for several modern societal problems, particularly those in the Indian sub-continent.

Trivia

  • 'Haroun' is a variant of the Hebrew name Aaron.
  • Haroun, the main protagonist, spends most of the novel in a story world called Kahani that has characters and issues similar to Haroun's real world. At the end of the novel, the reader is left to wonder whether Kahani was real or a dream, and whether strange changes to his real world are a result of his visit to Kahani or mere coincidence.
