Reviews

  • "This is the Rushdie we still need: eviscerator of the powers-that-be, who destroys rather than creates illusions... Here is a language adequate to our times."

    Telegraph
  • "A delightful confection… Humane and humorous. Rushdie is in top form, serving up a fine piece of literary satire."

    Kirkus Reviews *starred review*
  • "Rushdie’s rambunctious latest... [is an] uproarious comedy a brilliant rendition of the cheesy, sleazy, scary pandemonium of life in modern times."

    Publishers Weekly *starred review*
  • "Rushdie's dazzling and provocative improvisation on an essential classic has powerful resonance in this time of weaponized lies and denials."

    Booklist *starred review*
  • "Quichotte overwhelms you from the first page with a lightning storm of ideas and a monsoon of exuberant prose… Quichotte has all the verbal pyrotechnics and outlandish invention that will be familiar to readers of Rushdie’s fourteen previous novels, but at the heart it is a serious and affecting tale about the irresistible pull of history… those who are prepared to sit back and enjoy the ride will encounter scenery like none they have ever seen."
