Books & Books is thrilled to announce that Booker Prize-winning, internationally-bestselling author Salman Rushdie launches his new novel, QUICHOTTE presented in collaboration with Miami Book Fair at Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus Auditorium
World-renowned storyteller Salman Rushdie is at the height of his power in his highly-anticipated novel QUICHOTTE (Random House; 9/3/2019), an electrifying, modernized classic that fractures and reforms our conception of love in a whirlwind journey across America.
Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’s world classic, Sam DuChamp, a mediocre writer of spy thrillers, creates Quichotte, a courtly, aging salesman whose television obsession has cost him the ability to distinguish fantasy from reality. His infatuation with the “unreal real” causes him to fall in impossible love with a queen of the screen Miss Salma R. While obsessively writing her love letters, he wishes an imaginary son, Sancho, into existence. Together they set off on a picaresque quest across America in Quichotte’s trusty Chevy Cruze to find Salma and prove his worth, gallantly braving the tragicomic perils of an age where “Anything-Can-Happen.”
