Salman Rushdie visits Anderson's Bookshop
Anderson's Bookshop is proud to welcome Booker Prizewinning, internationally bestselling author Salman Rushdie to celebrate his latest novel, "Quichotte," a dazzling Don Quixote for the modern agea tour de force that is as much an homage to an immortal work of literature as it is to the quest for love and family.  The author will be in conversation with Pulitzer Prize finalist Luis Alberto Urrea, the critically acclaimed and best-selling author of 17 books.

More about the book:

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 satirize 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 Rushdies work, the fully realized 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.
