Salman Rushdie will speak about and sign his new book, Quichotte on Tuesday, September 17th at 7:30pm at *Unity of Boulder (2855 Folsom St.)*.
About the Book:
Inspired by the Cervantes classic, Sam DuChamp, mediocre writer of spy thrillers, creates Quichotte, a courtly, addled salesman who falls in impossible love with a TV star. 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, Quichotte takes the reader on a wild ride through a country on the verge of moral and spiritual collapse. The fully realized lives of DuChamp and Quichotte intertwine in wickedly entertaining portrait of an age in which fact is so often indiscernible from fiction.
Tickets to attend are $35 and include a pre-signed copy of Quichotte, to be distributed at the event. Tickets are available now on Eventbrite and at the link below!
