Cervantes’ epic, Don Quixote, is inarguably one of the most influential work ever written in Western literature. Its tragicomic aspects are ripe for 21st century reimagining, and no one imagines better than Salman Rushdie. In his new novel, Quichotte, Rushdie serves up social satire, a haunting love story, and a great road trip saturated with suspense and humor. His story is deeply rooted in America of the here and now, complete with television obsession, cyberwar, racism, opioid dependency, and the ever-present fact that we are in an age of “Anything-Can-Happen.” The lines between truth and fiction blur, and we understand why this novel has received rave reviews and is on the Booker Prize longlist. While ours is a civilization imperiled, our heroes in Quichotte define the tricky adventure of our modern life with shrewd satire and compassion.
