Description

Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2019

Penguin presents the audio edition of Quichotte by Salman Rushdie. 

In a tour-de-force that is both an homage to an immortal work of literature and a modern masterpiece about the quest for love and family, Booker Prize-winning, internationally best-selling author Salman Rushdie has created a dazzling Don Quixote for the modern age.

Inspired by the Cervantes classic, Sam DuChamp, mediocre writer of spy thrillers, creates Quichotte, a courtly, addled salesman obsessed with television, who falls in impossible love with a TV star. Together with his (imaginary) son Sancho, Quichotte sets off on a picaresque quest across America to prove worthy of her hand, gallantly braving the tragicomic perils of an age where 'Anything-Can-Happen'. Meanwhile his creator, in a midlife crisis, has equally urgent challenges of his own.

Just as Cervantes wrote Don Quixote to satirise the culture of his time, Rushdie takes the reader on a wild ride through a country on the verge of moral and spiritual collapse. And with the kind of storytelling magic that is the hallmark of his work, the fully realised lives of DuChamp and Quichotte intertwine in a profoundly human quest for love and a wickedly entertaining portrait of an age in which fact is so often indiscernible from fiction.

Wow!!!

This is the first Salman Rushdie novel I have completed (it will not be my last). It took me a while to get into it, but once I was in I was hooked. Its light, funny, and my god the range of the author goes for miles. A real artist of the word.

The narrator is the best I’ve ever heard. He makes the novel come alive and does wonderful impersonations.

I wouldn’t recommend this to everyone, but if your bored, and looking for something to stir the imagination give this a go.
