    Patience pays offI ll be the first to admit that I m not always the most patient reader This time, I m glad I took others advice and hung in there Quichotte was my first Rushdie novel, and it s true what people say about his style taking some getting used to In this case, the chapters switch point of view, and each character s voice is written in a slightly different style.The other thing that took patience was waiting for the different threads of the story to come together At first, I was confused because I couldn t see how the pieces we re introduced to would finally become a cohesive story.At the 20 25% mark four or five chapters , things started to come together I got used to Rushdie s style, and I realized that although the narration was in third person, sentence construction often reflected characters mental states I don t think his style s for everyone, but it work...

    Rushdie isn t for everyone He s expansive, hyper verbal, exuberant, urbane, and frequently absurdist But he s generous, if flamboyant A solid Salman novel, like this one, is also tender and sublime he locates the reader sweet spot and delivers a potent, exquisite and heartfelt denouement QUICHOTTE is speculative fiction designed as a picaresque and earnest tromp for true love All the masks are off at the end and you are face to face with what we do to be our authentic selves, warts and all, and what it is to love through our fears Quichotte is like Quixote, but contemporary, and meta meta and apocalyptic Although it took around 80 pages to fully engage there s a lot of learned and obscure references that were initially off putting, but gradually forms a coherent and wonderful beast of an epic journey An older and single, childless man, originally from Bombay, is in love from afar with Ms Salma R, a huge celebrity and media darling, a beautiful woman of Indian heritage living in NYC Ismail Smi...

    With his last two books, Salman Rushdie has become the chronicler of our age His rage at the events of November 2016 was apparent in The Glass House, in which he set forth his disgust with the White House s new occupant without once invoking the name Here, using the framework of the Cervantes masterwork, he addresses the outcomes of that person s destructive actions, the apocalyptic end of days, in two storylines in which he looks at climate change and the immigrant crisis among other crimes against humanity and common sense in the name of greed With nods to, among others, Thomas Merton, T S Law...

    Ismail Smile is a traveling sales rep of Indian birth, selling opioid medicines for his family firm, Smile Pharmaceuticals Since he spends much of his life on the road in motels, he spends his free time watching TV, and he becomes obsessed with former Bollywood star Salma R, who is now a big name in the US Convinced that he and Salma are destined for each other, Smile adopts the name Quichotte and takes off on a quest across the country to find his love Quichotte Smile is the fictional creation of Sam DuChamp a.k.a Brother, a British writer from India who has hitherto earned his reputation writing spy novels Brother s own story is also told , interspersed between the chapters recounting Quichotte s quest Brother s relationships echo Quichotte s in many ways, and as we learn about both men the boundaries between their realities becomes and blurred Quichotte in turn creates a fictional character in the form of a son, whom he names Sancho, and Sancho becomes real as the quest progresses Brother, on the other hand, is estranged from his own son and has not seen him for several years Which leads to the obvious question Rushdie himself is an author who was also born in India how much might DuChamp s reality spread to Rushdie s world, our own modern society It is beyond me to describe a book that has references to Chaucer s Canterbury Tales, Norse mythology video games, ...

    PW Starred Rushdie s rambunctious latest following The Golden House hurtles through surreal time and space with the author s retooled Don Quixote on a quest for love and redemption in an unloving and irredeemable U.S.A In this story within a story, Sam DuChamp, author of spy thrillers and father of a missing son, creates Quichotte, an elegant but deluded, TV obsessed pharma salesman who strikes out cross country with the son he s dreamed into existence, to kneel at the feet of an actress by the name of Miss Salma R Quichotte and son Sancho brave Rushdie s tragicomic, terrifying version of America, a Trumpland full of bigots, opioids, and violence They experience weird, end of time events people turn into mastodons, rips appear in the atmosphere but also talking crickets and blue fairies offering something like hope ...

    This marvelous, variegated book is changing the paradigm of postmodernism as we know it A maximalist, intertextual masterpiece, at once riotously aware of itself tenderly bending toward something like New New Sincerity, Quichotte thanks its influences, of which there are many Rushdie does not shy away from his unparalleled literary cinematic televisual repertoire , and in so doing erects entirely novel conventions, breaking its own and Cervantes s rules at every juncture None of this is to say anything of Rushdie s mind blowing sentences, poetic syntactical pyrotechnics, and unbelievable ...

    3.5 One reviewer mentioned that once you get past the first 85 pages, the novel flies For me, it went the other way Quichotte started out as imaginative, literate, playful, But as the novel rolled on, I lost the vibe, something that can happen with me and picaresque novels I was delighted at Quichotte s creation of his i...

    If ever you were worried that your absolutely favourite author read Sir Salman Rushdie will, with the passing of years, slow down or start loosing his magic power of storytelling, it is time to put that worry to bed and start reading his latest tour de force I won t go into the details of plot and characters other reviewers have done that already, and quite well, I might add But one thing I will say this latest of his books is up there on the same level with his earlier work For us, contemporary readers, it seems like Rushdie has shifted his focus from weaving the past i.e., history into his fiction, to weaving the present i.e., our daily news into his fiction Of course, future generations, will not feel that way they ll probably see him as a very astute a...
