Salman Rushdie at the Edinburgh International Book Festival
One of the most significant writers of our age, Salman Rushdie joins the Edinburgh International Book Festival 2019 for the worldwide launch of epic novel Quichotte. Veering from wildly comic to heartbreaking, Rushdie discusses his playful retelling of Don Quixote with James Naughtie. Set in present day USA, ageing salesman Quichotte embarks on a quest for love in his Chevy Cruze, driving with his imaginary son Sancho through a country on the brink of moral collapse.
