Quichotte - Salman Rushdie (Hardback)
Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2019, Salman Rushdie's Quichotte has been praised by the Financial Times, Evening Standard and the Observer, with the latter describing it as "One of the most vivid and convincing portraits of contemporary America I've read".
Inspired by the Cervantes classic, mediocre detective story author Sam Ducamp creates Quichotte - a courtly, addled, TV-obsessed salesman who falls in love with Salma R. Together and his (imaginary) son, Sancho. Quichotte takes it upon himself to prove himself worthy of her hand, gallantly braving the tragi-comic perils of the Age of Anything-Can-Happen. Meanwhile, Sam Ducamp is facing midlife trouble of his own...
A satirical masterpiece, this is a wickedly entertaining read that journeys through a country that is on the verge of moral and spiritual collapse...
