Fiction Hardcover Book of the Month - September:
Quichotte by Salman Rushdie!

In its simplest description, Quichotte is a modern-day retelling of Cervantes’ Don Quixote, about one man’s unlikely quest to win the heart of his true love. But of course, coming from the brilliant, playful mind of Salman Rushdie, and using the simple format of a road trip, it becomes so much more. With asides from the author, with its stories within stories, with its references to pop culture (of which Rushdie is a master!), Quichotte is an ambitious, dizzying, kaleidoscopic novel that dazzles while it entertains. It is a tilting at windmills in a cynical world gone a bit crazy, a tangled tale of estrangements and reconciliations, a visionary quest seeking the meaning of existence. It is about impossible, obsessional love, about opioid addiction, about living real lives in the time of fake news, and about the hypocrisies and absurdities of our mind-numbing junk culture. And it is very funny—buckle-up and enjoy the wild ride! My favorite Salman Rushdie novel since Midnight's Children! ED LOVED AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDS!
