《午夜之子》、《魔鬼詩篇》作者
薩爾曼·魯西迪最新著作


英國移民文學教父 魯西迪最新大作

Sam DuChamp是一個不怎麼樣的間諜驚悚小說作家,有一個失蹤的兒子,在眾多失敗中,DuChamp創造出了Quichotte:沉迷於電視節目的業務員,瘋狂愛上了一個電視明星。

Quichotte和(幻想中)的兒子Sancho一起踏上了如詩如畫的美國公路之旅,就為了要證明自己值得獲得這位明星的愛,他們在路途上碰到了許多怪事,例如有人突然變成乳齒象,而在現實中,他的創造者DuChamp也正在生活中掙扎。

以《午夜之子》三度獲得布克獎的「移民文學教父」魯西迪,以最新作品Quichotte再次問鼎曼布克獎,如同西班牙作家賽凡提斯為了諷刺當局寫下《唐吉訶德》,魯西迪則以一趟有如史詩般的遊覽打造現代版的《唐吉訶德》,這是對經典文學的致敬,透過遊歷崩潰邊緣的國度之旅,來探究愛與家庭的故事。


A dazzling 
Don Quixote for the modern age—a tour de force that is as much an homage to an immortal work of literature as it is to the quest for love and family, by Booker Prize–winning, internationally bestselling author Salman Rushdie 


Inspired by the Cervantes classic, Sam DuChamp, mediocre writer of spy thrillers, creates Quichotte, a courtly, addled salesman obsessed with television who falls in impossible love with a TV star. Together with his (imaginary) son Sancho, Quichotte sets off on a picaresque quest across America to prove worthy of her hand, gallantly braving the tragicomic perils of an age where “Anything-Can-Happen.” Meanwhile, his creator, in a midlife crisis, has equally urgent challenges of his own.

Just as Cervantes wrote Don Quixote to satirize the culture of his time, Rushdie takes the reader on a wild ride through a country on the verge of moral and spiritual collapse. And with the kind of storytelling magic that is the hallmark of Rushdie’s work, the fully realized lives of DuChamp and Quichotte intertwine in a profoundly human quest for love and a wickedly entertaining portrait of an age in which fact is so often indiscernible from fiction.

Advance praise for Quichotte

“A meditation on storytelling, memory, truth, and other hallmarks of a disappearing civilization . . . Humane and humorous. Rushdie is in top form.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
 
“Allowing the wild adventure to overwhelm oneself is half the fun. Rushdie’s extravagant fiction is the lie that tells the truth. . . . A brilliant rendition of the cheesy, sleazy, scary pandemonium of life in modern times.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
