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 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
  • "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
  • "Very much a Don Quixote for our times a wild, enjoyable ride."

    Evening Standard
  • "A delightful confectionHumane and humorous. Rushdie is in top form, serving up a fine piece of literary satire."
