Quichotte by Salman Rushdie
Booker Prize-winning and bestselling author Salman Rushdie returns with a take on Don Quixote in Quichotte.
From the publisher: “A dazzling Don Quixote for the modern age – a tour de force that is as much an homage to an immortal work of literature as it is to the quest for love and family, by Booker Prize-winning, internationally bestselling author Salman Rushdie.”
From Booker Judge Peter Florence: “If you are going to tilt at one of the greatest works of European literature, the novel often cited as the world’s greatest, then you’d better make sure you can play at Cervantes’ level. You’d better push the boundaries of fiction and satire, reimagine romance and fantasy, and you’d better have something to say about the contemporary world and all its delusions and heroisms. You’d better bring maximalist entertainment. If you can trump hubris and fill the pages with wonder, then your readers will be in for a helluva ride. Bring it on.”
