Reviews

  • "Rushdie is one of the greats of his generationBut it’s rare for a writer to produce their best work towards the end of their careerQuichotte is one of the cleverest, most enjoyable metafictional capers this side of postmodernism… This novel can fly, it can float, it’s anecdotal, effervescent, charming, and a jolly good story to boot… Encore! Encore!"

    Sunday Times
  • "A brilliant, funny, world-encompassing wonder… His readers realize that they would happily follow Rushdie to the end of the world… a glimmer of hope, like an impossible dream, is left for us [in Quichotte]."

    Time Magazine
  • "A triumphant assault on the coarsened American sensibility… [A] packed, funny, melancholy, masterpiece of a novel."

    The Times
  • "A novel that is as sharp as a flick-knife and as clever as a barrel of monkeys... More than just another postmodern box of tricks, [Quichotte] is a novel that feeds the heart while it fills the mind."

    The Times
  • "Rushdie’s fans will find much to love in this hyperactive, tenchicolour satire… Many balls are juggles here, but, somehow, Rushdie keeps them all gloriously in the air."
