Few 20th– and 21st-century novelists stand level with Salman Rushdie, and none stands above. Long, long after his brilliant modernist masterpiece The Satanic Verses made him newsworthy and transformed his public and private life in unfortunate ways, the British Indian novelist continues to be prolific and expansive. His 13th novel, Quichotte, is a Don Quixote for the modern age. Oblong Books in Rhinebeck teams with Bard to present the great Salman Rushdie in conversation with WAMC’s Joe Donohue on Tuesday, September 10 at the Fisher Center’s Sosnoff Theater. Tickets cost $38 and include a signed copy of Quichotte.
