The summary for "Tick, Tock" incorrectly states that Saleem is the biological son of Wee Willie Winkie and Vanita. The Analysis section has the correct info, that his biological father is Methwold.

Also, the summary for "How Saleem Achieved Purity" is incorrect, it says that the bomb that hit the jail frees Zafar. This could be misconstrued as the book is ambiguous, simply saying that the bomb "spared him a life of captivity." However, it later confirms that Zafar was indeed among those that died (pg. 452 in the Random House 2006 edition.)
