Booktalk: Salman Rushdie’s “Quichotte: A Novel”

Salman Rushdie’s 19th book and newest novel of contemporary times, Quichotte takes readers on a journey across America in a Chevy Cruze.

Rushdie’s road traveler, Quichotte, is a simple man who has watched too much television.

Perhaps because of that, it’s an anything-can-happen sort of trip sprinkled with cyber-spies, opioids, science fiction, racism of course, all mixed in with heavy doses of family ties real or imagined.

Born in India, mostly educated in England and a current resident of New York, Rushdie’s published work includes novels, books of non-fiction, a memoir and children’s books. Image © Rachel Eliza Griffiths.
